How Cold Does it Get in Dallas?
When we think of a typical cold Winter day here in Dallas, we think of 40 degree, chilly, rainy and gray days.

Typically between December to the end of February.
Sure, you could have a couple of these cold, rainy and gray days in October and even a few in March, April and even May. But those are few and far between.
In addition, be mindful that Texas weather is very versatile. So don’t be surprised if you have a few sunny 75 degrees in the middle of your January or February. Its not the norm but it does pop in every once in awhile and most Dallasites find it to be a refreshing change.

Dallas is one of the most fashionable cities I have been to (not the burbs, Dallas proper). Dallas and the Dallas burbs have 2 very different personalities.
But I think no matter where you live in the Dallas metroplex, staying warm is an essential priority.

However, when Dallas is in its Winter season, you’ll need more than just a pullover. You’ll want a good coat, with a hood, a scarf, gloves, a hat and even earmuffs. And some will even need long underwear underneath it all.
Everyone responds to the cold weather differently here.
When its 40 degrees out, you’ll still see some people in flip flops and some who look like they are ready to venture into the outback of Alaska.
