We usually don't get to post 24 hour temperature change maps quite like this in August. 20 to 25 degrees colder in some spots than this time yesterday. No complaints for breaking our routine, though! #dfwwx  #ctxwx

Correction: 47 days for DFW. The graphic is correct, but the text said 48.

Scattered showers & storms are again expected across parts of North & Central TX today with the focus more in Central TX this afternoon. Temperatures will likely remain in the 80s and lower 90s today with extra cloud cover. #dfwwx  #ctxwx  #txwx

☔ Keep those umbrellas handy because rain/storm chances continue through the weekend and early next week. Rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches with isolated higher amounts are possible. Below normal high temperatures in the 80s are also forecast next week. #dfwwx  #ctxwx  #txwx 

If this forecast was an art piece, it'd be titled "Stealing From Summer" Normal high temps this time of year are in the mid to upper 90s. And yes those are some low to mid 80s in the forecast next week. Some good rain chances too! #dfwwx  #ctxwx
