FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Well shiver-me-drink!
Emphasis on the thrill.
With a low temperature at DFW last Sunday morning of 19 ° F, it was by far the coldest temperature so far this season and it is possible that it will stay that way.
Time will tell us.
Monday morning wasn’t much better with a freezing start of 24 ° F.
Well hello, winter. We waited and wondered.
WHAT IS TEA THIS TIME, BLAKE?
Well, it’s January and our time will do the January things.
Another arctic front has developed and will move south to Texas by Wednesday, Jan.5 with the big push of cold air on Thursday.
That means our modest warm-up in the 60s on Tuesday and Wednesday is on borrowed time.
The overall weather pattern has reversed and definitely favors a more amplified pattern, meaning the jet stream is more wavy, allowing cooler air to spread further south than it was allowed to. do this throughout the season.
OHHHH, SCARY. WHEN IS THIS HAPPENING, WEATHER?
Well, no need for sarcasm, but he’s definitely on track to bring in some cheeky, cold air by Thursday and Friday.
High temperatures will once again return to those lows in the mid-1940s and overnight lows by Friday morning could register again in teens and lows 20s.
This arctic front doesn’t look as strong as the latter front, meaning our colder temperatures are still expected to be a few degrees warmer than those we saw on New Years weekend.
SO YOU KNOW WE ARE GOING TO ASK: SNOW?
Uh, no, but take this! Did you know that it snowed in a very unusual place on Sunday evening? Guesses?
Try Fort Walton Beach, Florida! Yes! I didn’t believe it either! The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office released a video of one of their officers in a parking lot watching this “great white rain” dance like fairies across the Sunshine State Panhandle.
Back locally, the atmosphere is far too dry, thanks to the New Year’s Arctic front and it will remain so on this next visit.
Thus, the risk of snow is effectively zero. As in none. It will not arrive. Not. Goes. To do. This.
YOU WRITE AS YOU LOVE COLD FRONTS…
And? I love the cold fronts AND the potential for cold and snow. Only this time we will only have one.
WHAT IS THE RESULT HERE?
The bottom line here is that it’s going to be cold, but it won’t be a record and no snow or ice is expected.
Thursday and Friday will be cold days with highs in the 40s and averages and Friday morning will be the coldest night behind this front.
Overnight lows will run through the upper teenage bracket in our Red River counties and counties north of DFW, including Denton and Collin.
In Dallas and Tarrant counties, high temperatures here will also be in the 40s and on Friday mornings will be as low as 20s.
So it will not be the pipe that bursts, but rather cold.
In our southern counties, expect temperatures quite similar to those just north.
ARE THERE OTHER FRONTS BEHIND THIS?
In the thickest country accent I can find, “Yes, there is!” However, the next front scheduled for Sunday is not as strong.
