Dallas weather forecast predicts freezing, near-record low temperatures


Get ready to say hello to fall this week. You may even need to turn on your heater.

According to the FOX 4 Weather team, an unusually cool air mass is descending from central Canada.

It is expected to bring near-record lows to North Texas and snow and freeze warnings for other parts of the country.

The temperature will drop into the 40s in most parts of North Texas overnight Monday.

Even with sunshine on Tuesday, a northerly breeze will keep temperatures high in the low to mid-60s.

While temperatures in the city are expected to stay near 40 overnight on Tuesday (the record is 38), sheltered places will easily drop into the low to mid-30s and some frost is possible.

Areas north and west of the metroplex can even experience freezing temperatures.

It won’t be a hard freeze, but it will definitely be cold enough to warrant bringing your plants and pets back inside.

Don’t get too used to the cold, though. The atmosphere will begin to warm again on Wednesday and highs will be back near 70 degrees. It will be closer to 80 on Thursday and Friday.

You’ll be turning the air conditioner back on by the weekend.
