Brand New Month; Same Old Records For North Texas

December 3, 2007 at 2:25 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

A cold front moved through North Texas on Sunday afternoon. It passed through the metroplex at about 3pm shifting the winds from the south to the north and the cold air is plunging in. It’s hard to believe that we will be in the 30s for the next couple of nights after Sunday’s record heat.

We tied the record for December 2nd with an afternoon high of 81 degrees. It previously happened back in 1995. And our low temperature of 68 degrees broke the record for warmest low temperature for this date. The previous record was 63 degrees.

The normal high and low at DFW Airport is 60 and 40 respectively. That put us an astounding 24.5 degrees above normal before the cold front moved through. The official low for the day will be recorded at at 11:59 pm since the temperature continues to plunge.

The average temperature over the last two days is 70.8 degrees. That’s the high and low averaged out on Saturday and Sunday. That makes this the warmest start to December ever in North Texas.

By the way, we have still not officially hit 32 degrees at DFW Airport this season. The average first freeze is November 22nd which has obviously come and gone. The latest first freeze is January 4th which is still a month away.
