Hitting 90 degrees in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area is nothing unusual. However reaching that benchmark in November is something that has never been done before (on record).
The forecast high temperature for the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is 91 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. If the temperature reaches 91 it will break the daily high temperature record for November 2 which currently sits at 87 degrees (set in 2012).

The National Weather Service – Fort Worth office tweeted Thursday night regarding the historic mark. According to the office, 90 degrees (or hotter) has not been reached since records began in the area in the late 1890’s. The graph above shows the hottest November temperature on record each year since.
Other Texas locations will likely tie or break daily record high temperatures Thursday as well. Some locales in TX may reach near-record heat Saturday, Sunday, and Monday before cooler air arrives Tuesday.
High pressure will remain dominant across the southern part of the country through the weekend. That is what will lead to warmer-than-average temperatures. To the north, stormier weather will bring in cool shots of air for places closer to the Canadian border.
