Cold and dry air is sinking deep into western Texas and the southern Plains, bringing frost and cold temperatures this morning.

Freeze Warnings have been posted for southern New Mexico, southwestern Texas, central Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas, including Las Cruces, N.M., Midland and Odessa, Texas, the greater Oklahoma City area, and Fayetteville, Ark.

Frost Advisories are also in effect across northern and central Texas and southern Oklahoma, including San Angelo, Fort Worth, and Wichita Falls, Texas, and Norman and Lawton, Oklahoma.

Temperatures this morning will drop below freezing, with temperatures settling into the upper 20s in the Freeze Watch areas. Areas under a frost advisory will see temperatures flirt with the freezing mark.

Locations farther to the north are also going to be below freezing, but have been spared additional warnings as the growing season has already come to an end there.

The autumn chill is the result of cold, dry air arriving behind a cold front, and making its way across eastern Texas and the Ozarks. Light winds and clear skies will assist temperatures in dropping rapidly early this morning.

The autumn chill will be brief. Highs this afternoon will rebound into the mid 60s, with overnight lows tonight dipping back into the upper 30s and low 40s.

Remember to move potted plants and pets inside and cover other temperature-sensitive vegetation if you have not done so already.
