    Norther Arrives in Dallas

    The weather system responsible for recent warmth has given it up thanks to a norther dropping across the Plains.

    A zone of high pressure responsible for many days of sunshine is shrinking to the east.

    Much cooler air on gusty northerly winds averaging 15 to 30 mph will continue Friday for those hitting stores or heading home from visiting family and friends.

    Daytime temperatures Friday and Saturday will be slashed by 15 to 20 degrees, compared to Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Aside from the brisk and cooler conditions, the balance of the weekend will be non-eventful weatherwise.

    A return flow of air from the south will begin on Sunday and could bring in enough moisture for spotty showers and thunderstorms by Monday.

    As a heads-up for those resuming their business, returning home or perhaps beginning a trip, a storm swinging across the Plains to start next week could make for more significant travel concerns over the eastern half of the nation Tuesday into Wednesday.

    Snow is possible over parts of the Upper Midwest, perhaps near to Chicago and Detroit. Areas of rain, thunderstorms and gusty wind are likely from major airport hubs from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston.

    The details on next week's storm will unfold over the weekend.
