After a near record high temperature today (93 degrees), colder weather is coming to north Texes tomorrow morning and especially early next week. A series of cold fronts will bring a rollercoaster ride with our temperatures over the next 7 days. 
 
The 1st front arrives early tomorrow morning, dropping afternoon highs a good 30゚ plus from today's forecast high.
 
The 2nd cold front arrives late Easter evening dropping temperatures into the mid to upper thirties by next Monday morning. 
 
Highs will struggle to get above 50゚on Monday and patchy frost is in the forecast for early Tuesday. A slow warm up will start by next Wednesday.
 
 If you have planted your vegetable gardens, you should be OK,  but please remember to use a frost cloth to protect or tender vegetation both Monday and Tuesday mornings. 
 
If you haven't planted your garden's, do so the weekend after next. Make sure that your soil is tilled and soft and apply some plant fertilizer to jump start the growing process.
 
 For the record, our average last freeze is March 12th, but we have experienced one as late as April 13th... twice! Once in 1957 when it hit 30゚ and in 1997 when it hit 32゚. I don't see a freeze occurring with this 2nd strong cold front early next week, but you may need to use a cloth both Monday and Tuesday mornings for protection.  A slow warm up will follow starting Wednesday.
 
Lastly,  I am keeping one eye open for strong to isolated severe storms on Saturday.  Good news is temperatures will be in the upper sixties, so the instability will be low.
 
Stay weather aware folks, it is April!
