North Texas weather forecast for this weekend (November 5-6, 2022)


Three tornadoes were confirmed from Friday’s storms in northern Texas. The same cold front that brought the storms will bring good weather for the weekend.


Friday tornadoes

3 tornadoes have been confirmed so far in North Texas following Friday’s severe weather:

  • Near Powderly, TX in Lamar County (north of Paris, TX)
  • Around Athens, TX in Henderson County
  • Near Sulfur Springs in Hopkins County

These are the only confirmed tornadoes on Saturday morning, but the number is expected to increase over the next few days.

Storm surveys are underway to determine the exact strength, path length, number of tornadoes, etc. The final details and information will not be known for at least several days.

So far, the only severe weather reported in the Dallas-Fort Worth area has been wind damage and a few instances of quarter-sized hail.

Keep checking for updates.

The storm system that caused the tornadoes in North Texas also caused tornadoes in parts of northeast Texas, southeast Oklahoma and western Arkansas. A total of 18 tornadoes were reported during Friday’s storms.

This weekend

It’s unfortunate that a cold front and storm system brought tornadoes and damage to the area, but that same front also brought cooler, more pleasant weather to North Texas for the weekend.

After a cold start on Saturday, temperatures will warm up nicely with highs in the 60s on Saturday afternoon with nothing but sunshine.

Sunday will start off cool to cold with lows in the 50s. But with a southerly breeze and continued sunshine, afternoon temperatures will be warmer and well into the 70s for the most part.

Next week

Scattered showers or thunderstorms are possible on Monday, but not everyone will see rain and the threat of severe weather seems minimal at this time.

Election Day (Tuesday) looks dry, warm and windy with highs around 80°.

On the weekend, another cold front arrives, bringing much cooler weather to North Texas for Friday into the weekend. This front can also bring thunderstorms, but they don’t seem widespread or significantly severe at this time.

Next weekend’s temps look potentially some of the coolest we’ve seen all fall.
