The record low this morning is 44° and we again hovered in the vicinity, dropping down to 46 degrees at DFW. 

It'll be another glorious afternoon, just one more like early April then early May. Highs will peak around 70 degrees, dewpoints will stay in the 40's (low humidity):

We'll have dry weather stretch all the way to Thursday when afternoon storm chances start to show up again in north Texas. The best chance of rain looks to fall on Friday or Friday night. Severe weather could form along the dry line on Thursday afternoon in our western counties on the Edwards Plateau, from Jack, Palo Pinto, Erath and Comanche counties.
