It’s time to get the fireplace ready, stockpile the wood, grab some extra blankets, pull winter coats out of storage and stock the cabinets for winter’s arrival.
National Weather Service meteorologists say an arctic front will move into Denton County between midnight Monday and sunrise Tuesday, bringing unseasonably cold weather.
Lows early Tuesday will dip to the upper 30s with highs struggling to reach the upper 40s. Some areas could see the upper 20s on Wednesday and Thursday nights. A freeze warning could be issued.
Though expected to be dry, there is a slight chance of precipitation in some areas. Those rain chances will increase this weekend as another cold front moves in overnight Saturday into Sunday.
Area meteorologists say more details will be available by midweek, so stay tuned in case the temperatures dip lower than expected and rain chances increase to create the potential for a wintry mix in the region.
