Smoke from the devastating fires in the western United States has drifted all the way to North Texas lately, creating some spectacular sunsets in Breckenridge. Today, Tuesday, Sept. 22, the area woke up to fog and mist, thanks to the same storm system that created Tropical Storm Beta along the Texas coast.

Breckenridge may see drizzle and some showers this morning as the outer rain bands from that storm move across North and Central Texas, according to the National Weather Service, but severe weather is not expected.

The high temperature for today is predicted at about 74 with an overnight low of 63.

Today may be the first day of Fall in the Northern Hemisphere, but the forecast shows some summer-like temperatures for the coming weekend. High temperatures are expected to slowly increase throughout the week to an expected high of 94 on Saturday before dropping back down into the 70s and 80s next week.
