We broke the record high today for the date. This afternoon it hit 83° at DFW, that surpassed the record by a full two degrees (previous record 81° in 2007).

The morning low at DFW only dropped to 67°, that also broke a record for warmest minimum for the date. Keep in mind the typical HIGH for this time in December is 60°. Our lows are higher than the seasonal lows. We have yet to hit the freezing mark at DFW, the coldest temperature so far this season was the 35° we hit on Nov. 28th.

As I look at the extended forecast out to mid-December I still don’t see freezing temperatures.

ONE MORE BREEZY, WARM DAY

The winds are going to stay up overnight out of the south. Along with some clouds this will keep temperatures in the 60’s for the third night in a row. By afternoon the skies will clear some, south winds will gust over 30mph and temperatures will leap to the low 80’s again.

Highs Monday

What a start to December.

COLD FRONT ARRIVES TUESDAY MORNING

The huge storm that is bringing heavy snow to the Rockies and flooding on the west coast will finally reach north Texas by Tuesday. The timing of the front means we have very little chance for rain for the metro area. The rain chances are in our eastern counties for morning and early afternoon. Currently north Texas is in severe and moderate categories of drought. Below you can see rain chances east and southeast of Dallas and Fort Worth:

8am Tuesday

Temperatures will cool down yet still stay above normal for the time of the year. Highs will get to the low 70’s on Tuesday and stay in the 60’s on Wednesday.

The next chance of rain for the metro area and the rest of north Texas will arrive Saturday and Sunday when a strong front arrives. Highs next weekend will be almost 20 degrees cooler.
