Cold and getting colder

GREENVILLE — It is likely already cold outside, and it is only expected to get colder overnight, as Hunt County experiences its first freeze of the fall season, thanks to the arrival of an arctic cold front.

The National Weather Service issued a freeze warning for Hunt County and the surrounding area, which means that sub-freezing temperatures are likely to occur. The conditions can kill sensitive plants, and the agency advised that automatic sprinklers should also be turned off to avoid creating ice patches on nearby roads, driveways and sidewalks.

The forecast was calling for a very slight chance of precipitation this morning, with the temperature rising to near 47 by noon, then falling during the remainder of the day. Winds will be out of the north with gusts as high as 30 mph.

The winds are expected to die down overnight, with a low around 25 degrees and a high near 47 again Wednesday afternoon.

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