The bitter cold of Thursday and Friday will give way to 70 and sunny in 48 hours.
The National Weather Service is calling for a high of 70 degrees on Sunday, two days after Dallas-Fort Worth Airport hit a low of 24 degrees, the coldest morning since March 6, 2015.
Matt Stalley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, said the area of high pressure that followed the Wednesday night arctic cold front into North Texas will move east over the weekend.

“As it does, we’ll have pretty strong south winds bring warmer air and Gulf moisture,” resulting in the warm-up on Sunday, Stalley said.
The rest of the day Friday will be cold, with a high of 42 and a low of 31 Friday night. Saturday will have a high of 52 and a 20 percent chance of light rain that night.
After Sunday’s high of 70, it’ll cool down again with highs in the low 60s Monday and Tuesday and in the high 40s Wednesday and Thursday, according to the weather service.
