You know the feeling, jacket or sweater when you leave the house in the morning, short sleeves by the time you're ready to head home.

But finally, North Texas...one whole day of decent weather!

With a little more sunshine today, highs will touch 80° or above from DFW to the west! The record high at DFW tomorrow is 83° set in 2005 -- we could get pretty close to that Thursday.

So all this sunshine and no where to go? Here's a list of 8 things you can do for free (or almost free) to carpe diem!

  • Penguin Days at the Dallas Zoo: Check out these adorable guys while you can! They'll be at the Dallas Zoo until February 28, admission is $7 and children under 4 and Dallas Zoo members get in free
  • Stroll through the Dallas Arboretum: Enjoy a tasting of some of the week's fresh vegetables or pop in for some afternoon tea in the garden. Admission is $5 and they're open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

  • Take a hike...literally: Head 20 minutes from downtown Dallas and you've got yourself a slice of the hill country at the Cedar Ridge Preserve. You can hit the trails as early as 6:30 a.m. until sunset -- perfect for sweating off the day's stress after work
