First freeze of the year hits North Texas ❄️

December 7, 2017

North Texas received its first freeze of the year overnight, marking the longest stretch between freezes on record.

The average first freeze is on Nov. 22. Our last freeze was January 20, 2017. Snow was spotted in parts of North Texas Thursday morning, but it didn't stick around. Heavier amounts hit San Antonio and Houston.

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, warm ground temperatures won't allow anything to stick.

Cold mornings come to North Texas this weekend. Then it's back to warmer than normal temperatures and sunny days.
