The Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport recorded its first freeze of the season Thursday morning and a second light freeze is possible Friday morning.
The trick-or-treat forecast for the evening is not looking spooky, but it will be very cold and dry with temperatures mostly in the 40s, dropping into the upper 30s by 10 pm.
Thursday was the ninth earliest freeze on record. The morning low of 30 degrees makes it the second coldest Halloween on record. The previous record was 29 degrees set in 1993. The earliest freeze we have ever seen was on Oct. 22, 1898.
A second light freeze is possible Friday morning. Make sure you take the necessary freeze precautions! Protect your plants and make your pets have a warm shelter. Remember to turn off sprinklers to avoid frozen sidewalks and streets.
Most freezes occur in North Texas during the month of January. During the winter season, DFW averages 33 days with temperatures at or above freezing. The average date of the first freeze is Nov. 22.
