A arctic cold front will arrive in North Texas late Wednesday evening, bringing with it the coldest air we have felt in almost two years! High temperatures will stay in the 30s on Thursday with wind chills in the 20s all day!

A hard freeze will occur Friday morning, with lows between 16 and 21 degrees. Please remember to protect your pipes, plants and pets.


There is also a slight chance of a light wintry mix across parts of north Texas early Thursday morning. Chances are very slight, but some slick spots may develop on elevated objects south of I-20 by mid-morning.

Good news is that the atmosphere will rapidly dry out by noon and the wind gusting to 35mph will quickly dry up the roads.

Keep it tuned to NewsRadio 1080am KRLD through the overnight into Thursday morning. I will have updates if conditions warrant, especially through the overnight. Stay warm!
