Temperatures are expected to plummet. Thursday night will mark the longest stretch between freezes on record.
The average first freeze is on November 22. Our last freeze was January 20, 2017. Snow was spotted in parts of North Texas Thursday morning, but it didn’t stick around.
While the snow looks impressive on the radar, most precipitation is evaporating before reaching the ground. And, since it’s been 333 days since the area saw a freeze — a streak expected to end Friday morning — warm ground temperatures won’t allow anything to stick.
Cold mornings come to North Texas on Friday and this weekend. Then it’s back to warmer than normal temperatures and sunny days.
