Below is a graph showing the high temperatures over the past 7 days. That 79 degree high last Wednesday feels like an eternity ago. But in the past 5 days the temperature at DFW has failed to reach 40 degrees.
I went over the record books and found that the last time we had 5 days in a row with temperatures below 40 degrees in the month of December was 1983.
December 1983 was also the coldest December on record. And records go back 114 years.
