North Texas is on track to post one of its warmest winters on record.
Temperatures Sunday reached the upper 70s across most of North Texas, and even touched 80 degrees in cities just southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. On top of that, temperatures could creep a little bit higher Monday before a cold front moves through.
The temperature at DFW International Airport has dropped to freezing or below only 18 times so far this winter -- the average number of freezes each winter is 33.
In addition, the average temperature for the winter of 2019-2020 is, to this point, the 15th-warmest on record. Temperature records date back to 1898.
Meteorological winter runs from Dec. 1 through the end of February.

Of course, winter isn’t over yet. The latest freeze on record for DFW occurred on April 13. But given the trends, that is not likely to happen this year.
