The passage of a cold front will prevent Friday's warmth from being repeated in Dallas this weekend.

"Saturday will be much cooler than Friday," Meteorologist Frank Strait said, adding "temperatures will drop from the lower 80s on Friday to the low 60s for a high on Saturday.

Temperatures will be held to the upper 50s on Sunday.

"It will be a major turnaround for them, but that's nothing unusual in early spring," Strait said.

Through the weekend, skies will be cloudy and the area will stay breezy and cool. A shower or thunderstorm will be around on Saturday with spotty showers lingering on Saturday night into Sunday morning.
