NOT A RECORD
Tonight’s low of 45 at DFW will not break a record. The record low for tonight is 34 degrees. But it is quite unusual for temperatures to be this cold this late in the season. In fact, there have only been 29 times in the record books where the temperature has dropped to 45 degrees or colder in the month of May.
WHY SO COLD
It is thanks to the slow-moving upper level low that brought severe weather to the SE. We are on the cold side of this system so we have cooler air. But by the weekend it heats up with temperatures in the 90s by Sunday.
