It's our coldest morning in seven years!
North Texans woke up Wednesday morning to temperatures below 20 degrees. The last time it was this cold was back in 2011.
At least eight cities in North Texas saw record-low temperatures for Jan. 17, according to the National Weather Service of Fort Worth: Granbury (6 degrees), Bridgeport (4 degrees), Benbrook (9 degrees), Arlington (14 degrees), Decatur (7 degrees), Palestine (10 degrees), Sulphur Springs (8 degrees) and Paris (9 degrees).
A Hard Freeze Warning is now over for all of North Texas, but temperatures in downtown areas of Dallas-Fort Worth should stay in the teens.
Lingering icy spots may continue for bridges, overpasses, less-traveled roads, and neighborhood roads since sub-freezing temperatures stick with us until Wednesday afternoon.
Don't worry, warm weather lovers. After Wednesday, a very decent warming trend ensues. The 50s return Friday with the 70s (not kidding!!) back on Saturday!
Our next cold front rolls through Sunday, bringing with it a slight drop in temperatures and some scattered showers.
So, no winter weather. All rain this time around.
