Palm Sunday was far from calm Sunday in North Texas, as powerful winds gusting to 45 mph made temperatures in the 50s feel like the 40s.

But now that the wind has died down, it's time for the big chill.

The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for all of North and Central Texas from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday morning. Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s and low 30s before the start of the weekday rush hour.

So if you got a little ahead of yourself with spring gardening chores, beware: Cover up those tender plants overnight.

The weather service also urges you to make sure that automatic sprinkler systems are turned off to avoid the possibility of ice forming on roads, driveways and sidewalks.

High pressure will keep the forecast quiet for the beginning of the week; still cool with highs only in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Our next chance of rain may come on Thursday.
