Frigid Temperatures - Temperatures are just absolutely unbelievable this morning. Some places have even dropped to the single digits this morning...
My weather station reads 11 degrees in Southeast Arlington... This is the new record low for DFW if we can drop two or three more degrees. Thankfully, there really isn't any ice on roads, but a few isolated spots may be a little slick.
One thing that is important when you head to work and school this morning is to bundle up big time. Any exposed skin in these frigid temperatures can cause frostbite or hypothermia in 30 minutes. We only warm to the mid 30s today, so continue to keep the winter gear handy throughout the day.
Tomorrow should be much warmer; we start the day in the upper 20s, and we end up in the mid 40s. Any leftover ice at that time will melt during the afternoon.
Friday and the Weekend - We should begin a rapid warm-up by Friday. It should be mostly sunny with a high of 58, Saturday will be ten degrees warmer, and Sunday will stay the same. Sunday is our next chance of showers and thunderstorms. A few storms could actually turn severe with mainly damaging winds, but a tornado or two can't be ruled out. We will continue to keep you posted as the day gets closer and the forecast changes.
Next Week - We remain average in terms of temperatures, and next week should be generally dry with highs averaging to about 60. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
