Cold and rainy today with falling temperatures through the 40s


Cold front will slowly to seep into the area today, as the wind picks up by late morning. This is when the coldest air arrives.

Temperatures have dropped into the low fifties this morning,  with areas of drizzle and light rain. Rain will really start to pick up by late morning into the early afternoon tomorrow, as temperatures fall into the mid to upper thirties.

As we work our way into tonight and Tuesday, the freeze line will creep very close to the 35W corridor. As of now, I'm not expecting any bridges, overpasses or elevated objects to get any kind of ice coating in DFW. This threat should stay about two county rows west of 35W. I will be watching the temperatures though, into early Tuesday morning.

Cold rain should let up by mid to late afternoon, but pick up again late Tuesday I to the 1st half of Wednesday... as the whole system swings through.

Temperatures will hold steady in the upper thirties to low forties through Wednesday afternoon.

Slow clearing will take place on Thursday as temperatures warm into the 50s.

Don't forget to check your heaters, clean your flues of your fireplace and dress warmly if you're going to be outside for an extended period of time. Average rainfall totals will be between 1" to 2" during this event.
