Arctic Air Plunges into the Great Lakes, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic

Arctic air dropping through the northern and eastern U.S. and a storm off the east coast will bring periods of snow, very cold wind chills and hazardous traveling conditions from the Upper Great Lakes to the Northeast. Meanwhile in southern California, Santa Ana winds will decrease but hot, dry air will remain over the area with elevated fire weather conditions. Read More >

The Geminid Meteor Shower peaks tonight (Wednesday night) from 10 pm until 4 am. With clear skies and a non-bright moon phase, it will be a great night to view the shower. Make sure to dress appropriately as temperatures will be falling into the 30s overnight.
Another cold front will move into the region this evening and overnight. This front will result in a north wind shift, but gusty winds are not expected until Thursday. Low temperatures tonight and Thursday morning will be in the 30s for most locations.
Temperatures today will be some 10-15 degrees cooler than they were on Wednesday, but will still be at or above normal for this time of year. Breezy north winds will develop later this morning. In addition, the air will remain dry, so there will be a continued elevated fire weather threat today across a good chunk of the forecast area. Exercise great care if any outdoor activities could result in fire ignition!
This map shows counties where Burn Bans are currently in effect. Burn Bans are established by County Judges and Commissioner Courts, so check with your local officials for further information.
A storm system will approach the region on Saturday, which will begin to draw Gulf moisture back northward. By Saturday evening and overnight, rain chances (perhaps with a few thunderstorms as well) will overspread all of North and Central Texas. Not everyone will get rain from this system, however. The highest rain chances will be along and east of I-35.

T = snowfall too scant to measure or frozen precipitation melted as it fell
ice = a month or season with freezing rain/drizzle (glaze) but no snow or sleet
