As we close out one of the warmest November’s on record, much cooler air is settling in as we head into December. It’s not felt much like fall this month with all but a handful of days this month seeing above average temperatures in the 70s and low 80s.

With the colder pattern on the way we’ll also likely get the first freeze of the season about 2-3 weeks later than average. By Tuesday morning temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 20s to low 30s bringing an end to the growing season across the most if not all of the ArkLaTex.
