Season’s first freeze possible overnight

A chilly fall weekend is in store, and Greenville could see its first freeze of the season by early Sunday morning.

It is not expected to be a hard freeze and the National Weather Service had not placed Hunt County under any freeze advisories or warnings as of Friday evening.

Conditions are expect to start warming a little by the start of next week.

The forecast was calling for mostly clear skies overnight and a low around 38 degrees by this morning. Winds gusting out of the north at up to 20 mph were predicted to subside.

It was expected to be sunny with a high temperature of around 61 degrees this afternoon, with winds out of the north at 5 to 10 mph.

The low tonight was forecast to dip right to the freezing mark of 32 degrees before dawn Sunday, which was expected to also have a sunny afternoon and a high in the mid-60s.

It may be a while before we get to the really cold, as in freezing, temperatures. The first freeze in Greenville last year came on November 28 and on November 6 in 2010. The first freeze locally in 2009 didn’t arrive until December 6.

The National Weather Service reported that the average first freeze in the North Texas area is November 22, with the average last freeze on March 13.
