Another Winter Storm

December 15, 2007 at 2:45 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Another winter storm is pulling out of the Rockies, and moving across the southern plains. Winter Storm Warnings and Snow Advisories are in effect across Oklahoma. Along the Red River, there may be a few snowflakes mixed in with the rain before it ends Saturday morning. But here in the Metroplex, all of the precipitation will remain liquid. And that rain should be ending around daybreak, when the cold front blows through our area.

That same front will also clear out the fog that will be with us through the night. But in its wake, a cold north wind will blow all day Saturday, at 20 to 35 mph. As a result the temperature will drop into the upper 30’s, and the wind chill will be down in the teens and 20’s. Make sure you are warmly dressed on Saturday.

Then as the wind dies down, and skies clear Saturday evening, the temperature will continue to drop. By daybreak on Sunday the temperature should be into the upper 20’s at DFW, and even colder in outlying counties. That should result in the first “official” freeze of the year at DFW. But this is very late for a first freeze of the season. Typically, the first freeze occurs around November 21st. This year, it won’t happen until December 16th. That will make this the 6th latest date ever, for our first freeze.
