Temperatures across North Texas are cooling off after a brief period of warmer weather.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Fort Worth predicts that cold temperatures will soon return across the region, with a weak cold front pushing through beginning today.

The region has been experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures and even broke a record on January 10 with a high of 80 degrees, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

These exceedingly warm temperatures were preceded by arctic temperatures that impacted the state and nation as a whole during Christmas time.

The NWS predicts highs in the 50s and 60s across the region beginning on the evening of January 18 through the following week. Lows will drop into the 30s and 40s.

The agency reported that a front moving through Texas in the morning hours of January 18 would bring a likelihood of storms east of I-35. The threat of severe weather was predicted as low but possible in affected regions.

The NWS told The Dallas Express that temperatures are expected to drop into much more seasonable temperatures. Normal temperatures around this time of year tend to be around the mid-50s.

“We were near record highs yesterday (January 17). We’re a little bit cooler today with the rain and cloud cover, but we are still above normal for this time of year,” Miles Langfeld from the NWS explained to The Dallas Express.

Chances of rain will return on January 21. However, rain accumulation is not expected to exceed a quarter of an inch. The NWS predicts better chances of rain early the following week.

Rain returned to the metroplex on January 18, but this moisture was followed by a critical fire danger risk that was issued across the region.
