Highs today stayed in the low 50’s across north Texas. Wind gusts peaked over 40 mph at DFW today with sustained winds getting as high as 35 mph.

We are five days into Spring and eleven days into the average start to the growing season. We’ve likely noticed the flowers and the greening-out of the trees. This year we are going to have a hard freeze just as the growing season has started. There is one forecast for tonight and tomorrow night as well.

Below are the forecast lows for Monday morning. The darker shade across areas north of DFW is where we expect the lows to get below 30°, a hard freeze:

Clears skies and lighter winds (around 10 mph) will allow temperatures to again drop below freezing. It’ll likely be a few degrees cooler in most locations than tonight:
