NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – After two weeks of winter weather – the coldest run of it in 14 years – North Texas broke into spectacular February weather this weekend.
It looks to continue for the coming week, trying to make up for the first 11 days of the month where the average high was a mere 38 degrees. For the next seven days, we do not expect the temperatures to fall below freezing.
Keep in mind the growing season is still a month away.
Monday will start in the low 40s in the morning and give way to mostly sunny skies for the rest of Valentine’s Day. Temperatures should stay in the 70s with not much wind: Roses are red, skies are blue.
The mild conditions continue Tuesday with a brisk south wind by afternoon. Expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s. That goes for Wednesday, too, but with more clouds and wind.
Expect to top out in the mid 70s Thursday and low 70s Friday. There will be dry weather for the most part, but a few morning sprinkles are possible Wednesday and Thursday, especially for those counties near the Red River. Overnight lows will be in the 50s during this period of time.
There is a small chance of rain next weekend, with temperatures hovering in the 60s on Saturday and the low 70s on Sunday.
Enjoy the mild weather. We’ve earned it.
