Colder temperatures are expected to last throughout the day and into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

A frigid front arrived Saturday evening, dropping temperature to 39 degrees Sunday morning at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. Wind chills were in the 20s, with northwest winds gusting to 40 mph.

A freeze warning was issued for North and Central Texas until 9 a.m. Monday, when lows were expected to reach the low 30s, according to the National Weather Service.

"It probably won't be record lows, but certainly close to it," said meteorologist Dan Huckaby of the NWS office in Fort Worth. "And freezing temperatures could be in the outlying areas of Fort Worth on Tuesday morning."

Today's high temperature is predicted in the mid-50s, and not much will change Tuesday.

Warmer temperatures come back Wednesday, when it could get up to 70 degrees, forecasters say.

The National Weather Service is calling for even warmer temperatures for the rest of the week.

Rain could return Thursday and over Easter weekend.

The forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of rain Thursday through Saturday.
