Brrr! First Freeze Of The Season Could Arrive Overnight

Nov 11, 2014

It's cold out there! And much of North Texas could get its first freeze of the season overnight.

At 11 a.m. Tuesday, wind chill readings were in the low 30s across North Texas, the National Weather Service says. We'll climb into the upper 40s Tuesday afternoon. By evening, the temperatures will take a nosedive.

A freeze warning will be in place early Wednesday morning for much of North Texas. Dozens of counties are under the warning, including Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Collin and Rockwall counties.

The warning is in effect from midnight to 9 a.m. Wednesday, the weather service says.

Low temperatures could dip overnight into the low 30s in Dallas-Fort Worth – and into the upper 20s northwest of Dallas-Fort Worth.  

Sensitive plants could freeze and outdoor pets will need extra protection.

Turn off automatic sprinkler systems to avoid ice patches on roads, driveways and sidewalks.

Freezing temperatures could stick around Thursday and Friday mornings, according to the forecast.

In the Wichita Falls area, a hard freeze warning is in place from midnight to 9 a.m. Wednesday -- expect a low temperature between 20 and 28 degrees. The warning is in place for several counties around Wichita Falls, as well as southern Oklahoma. Sensitive plants should be brought indoors in the Wichita Falls area, the weather service says.
