Spring arrived Monday and brought with it a record-high temperature to North Texas.
Dallas/Fort Worth Airport reached 92 degrees, breaking the mark of 91 degrees set in 1932, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.
DFW hadn’t cracked the 90-degree barrier on March 20 since 2006 and, before that, 1995, said weather service meteorologist Jason Godwin.
Temperatures should be slightly lower the rest of the week, with highs expected in the 80s on Tuesday. Storms could move into the area Friday, bringing heavy rain and damaging wind, Godwin said.
Monday’s heat doesn’t guarantee that temperatures the rest of the spring and into the summer will be any higher than usual. But some National Weather Service projections call for higher-than-average temperatures in June, July and August, Godwin said.
