Temperatures in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will be in the low 30s. Areas to the north and west could see morning lows in the 20s.
In preparation for the freezing temperatures, protect your pipes, plants and pets. It is also important to turn off your sprinklers.
This freeze comes about a month ahead of schedule.
