After starting the week with near-normal temperatures, cold air rushed into northern Texas on Tuesday.

Clouds and sunshine prevailed on Monday with temperatures rising into the lower 70s, but a front swept through the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Tuesday bringing in arctic air.

Highs will dropped nearly 20 degrees on Tuesday with the high temperatures settling around 53 degrees.

Clearing skies Tuesday night allowed for lows to drop below freezing.

More sunshine will break through for Wednesday with temperatures in the lower 50s.

Afternoon highs will struggle to get out of the 50s until late in the week, but moisture coming up from the Gulf will help create showers on Thursday and Friday.
