NBC 5 Meteorologist Grant Johnston updates the afternoon video forecast for Nov. 3, 2011.
A cold and dry air mass will remain across North Texas overnight, sending temperatures falling into the 20s and 30s.
The Freeze Warning is in effect for all North Texas counties except Dallas, Rockwall, Ellis, Navarro, Freestone and those to the east. Counties to the north and northeast, like Collin, Hunt and Hopkins, are included in the warning.
All counties to the west of Dallas County are included.
It's probably easier to just look at the map in the forecast video above to see if you're included.
The Freeze Warning will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m., so be sure to bring in your pets and cover your sensitive plants. A hard freeze is possible, so it would be prudent to cover exposed pipes.
Temperatures are expected to climb above freezing by 9 a.m.
The first freeze, should it occur tonight, is happening a little early for North Texas. Generally, the Metroplex doesn't see freezing temperatures until Nov. 22.
