Collin County is one of the many North Texas counties under a freeze warning tonight – which is unusual since the last frost generally occurs in March. The cold front has lots of homeowners worried about the spring landscaping they’ve already planted.
Any rain is cause for celebration in drought stricken North Texas. Its especially exciting when you get more rain in one day than you’ve seen the whole month of September
The strong upper level low that has influenced our weather the past few days is now centered over Central Kansas. This upper level system like all upper level lows has a lot of cold air in it.
The skies are clearing over DFW, watch temperatures leap into the upper 80’s as wind gust pick up to the 40mph range. The cap is firmly in place, we are not expecting storms until a cold front gets close enough to break it. That’ll be late tonight, after midnight likely.
Another cold front is about ready to pass through Corsicana, Athens and Quitman. Ahead of the front temperatures are very warm.
Yesterday’s total rain by midnight at DFW: .99”, making it the second wettest Christmas Eve day on record. The clouds just would not leave today; highs stayed in the 30’s most of the day and didn’t hit 41° until 3pm.
We can expect a little bit of everything in our Monday forecast.
Chilly weather is on the way to North Texas. After a couple of pleasant days, with temperatures in the 70s, get ready for some much cooler weather by the weekend.
