The cloudy and cool start to the weekend in Dallas will soon be replaced by sunshine and milder temperatures.

In the wake of a cold front, temperatures Saturday morning in Dallas fell instead of rising as is typically the case after sunrise.

Temperatures dropped from an early morning high of 81 degrees into the 50s right before noon CDT and did not rebound as the afternoon progressed.

Gusty winds created even chillier AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures, while a shower further dampened the day.

A breeze will persist into Sunday, but the return of abundant sunshine will bring noticeable warming in the afternoon. A high of near 80 degrees is expected to close out the weekend.
