Most areas will see a freeze tonight. There is a freeze warning out for the counties shaded in blue. The reason areas to the N & W of DFW are not in the Freeze Warning is because those areas have already seen a freeze. The coldest part of the night will be from 3am to 9am.
HOW COLD WILL IT GET…
Here are a look at the morning lows for tonight.
33 DEGREES TONIGHT AT DFW…
It is imprtant to note that DFW may stay a degree above freezing at 33 degrees. This is important when looking at the historical record of freezes.

The latest freeze on record for a season was on Jan.4, 1972. Then records were kept at the Greater Southwest International Airport. Not far from the current DFW recording site.
Here are the official reporting sites since data has been collected.
