NORTH TEXAS --  Call it the ‘big chill’ in Big D.

That’s right, it’s time to bust out those winter sweaters and scarves; Old Man Winter moved in overnight and it looks like he’ll stick around for a few days.

It was downright blustery and cold Saturday morning, with highs barely reaching around 50-degrees.

What’s more, gusty winds up to 30-miles per hour had North Texas under a wind advisory for much of the day. But, wait there’s more: the National Weather Service says a freeze warning is in effect until tomorrow.

The expected low tonight: 29-degrees! It’ll mark our first official freeze of the season. It's been months since we’ve been that cold in North Texas.

Wow, better crank up that heater. It's quite the different picture from earlier this week when temps were in the 70s.

Oh, that Mother Nature, she’s a fickle one.

Well, as in true Texas fashion, this cold snap won’t last long. Get this – the forecast calls for rain and temps back near 70-degrees on Thanksgiving.

Oh well, guess we can all be thankful we don’t have to plow snow on the holiday.
