NBC5 Forecast: Chilly With Areas of Light Rain

After a chilly, but Dry Christmas, look for more clouds and areas of light rain and drizzle as the next storm system slides south of North Texas today. Rainfall totals will generally be less than a tenth of an inch. Drier air will slowly work into the region from the north tonight, but drizzle or light rain may persist for many. Cold air, potentially below freezing may lead to a light freezing drizzle well west of DFW. Confidence is low, but be sure to check back for updates. It will be rain-free, but still cloudy and cold Wednesday and Thursday, before we see a bit of sun on Friday. Another surge of cold Arctic air will arrive next Sunday. 2018 will likely start on a cold note, with the lowest temperatures so far this winter. There is a low chance of some wintry precipitation on Sunday. At this point, it is much too early to say for sure. But keep close tabs on our forecast if you plan to be on the road on New Year's Eve.
