NORTH TEXAS (KRLD) – After a 56-degree temperature plunge this past weekend, temperatures will rapidly warm up this week.

We didn’t break any records during this brief Arctic cold spell here in North Texas, but readings fell Saturday from 73-degrees at 1 p.m. to 17-degrees at 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

Parts of North Texas even saw a few snow flurries late Saturday evening.

It was even colder this morning with the lows in the low to mid-teens. Highs today will still be a good 20-degrees below normal (normal high 56). I am forecasting a high of 35.

By Tuesday, we will warm to near 50. Wednesday highs will reach 62-degrees, just in time for the first day of winter.
