North Texans on Thursday braved a powerful arctic air mass that pummeled temperatures into the 20s, unleashed single-digit wind-chill values and forced a slippery commute in some locations.
The temperature dropped to 22 degrees with a wind chill of 8 early Thursday morning. By 2:30 p.m. the mercury had climbed to 28 degrees, but the wind chill made it feel like 11.
People got on with their lives, but even colder, more dangerous conditions faced homeless people Thursday night.
Many hunkered down in shelters, makeshift tents and around campfires, anticipating nighttime temperatures expected to bottom out in the low teens, with wind-chill values at zero.
