Another big warm up this week

After our first freeze of the season on Sunday, another warm up will follow this week.

DALLAS — We finally did it!

While most of North Texas outside of immediate Dallas-Fort Worth has seen freezing temps so far this season, D-FW officially recorded its first freeze of the season Sunday morning.

The temp dropped to 32° right around sunrise on Sunday.

The average first freeze for D-FW is November 22, so Sunday's freeze comes about three weeks later than normal.

It is also the latest first freeze since 2007 when the first freeze came on December 16. 

Sunday's freeze does mark the 11th-latest freeze on record. And if you were wondering, the latest freeze on record is when it took until January 4 in 1972 to hit the freezing point.

Well... that didn't last long.

The brief cooldown will be replaced with near-record warmth yet again in the upcoming week. Highs are back in the mid to upper 70s on Tuesday and near 80° by Wednesday.
