Warmer weather is on its way. High temperatures will be in the 50s on Friday, and in the 60s or low 70s on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, some chances for showers and thunderstorms will return to the forecast, especially for areas along and east of I-35 on Saturday.
Low temperatures fell to as low as -3 degrees in Eastland last night. Observed lows from around the area are shown.
Eastland, TX reached -3F on Wednesday morning. This was due to light winds and the station's location in a valley. With calm winds, the coldest air sinks to the bottom of the valley. Any winds at all will mix the air, causing the temperature to stay slightly warmer.
With very cold temperatures forecast for North and Central Texas, be sure to dress in layers to stay warm!

What is NOAA Weather Radio?     

picture of noaa weather radio receiverNOAA Weather Radio is a service of NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The broadcasts originate from local National Weather Service Offices around the country and broadcast continuous weather information 24 hours a day 7 days a week. In addition, other natural disasters and national emergencies are broadcast when appropriate.

At the National Weather Service Office in Fort Worth the information broadcast is tailored to the weather needs of the people of North Texas. Routine programming include a short term weather forecast, a 7 day forecast for the listening area and hourly weather information. In times of hazardous weather, special products, such as watches, warnings, special weather statements and outlooks will be broadcast.

One of the unique features of NOAA Weather Radio is the ability to receive up to the second information on severe weather, such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and flash floods. Many weather Radio receivers are equipped with a tone alert feature. These receivers will either sound an alarm, or when operated in muted mode, will be automatically turned on so that the warning message will be heard. These tone alerts are activated by the National Weather Office where all severe weather warnings originate.

The National Weather Service Office in Fort Worth operates 13 Radio consoles broadcasting from 13 transmitters located across North Texas.
