Well, it’s that time of year; we start to wonder when the first freeze will take place.
 
Looking at some weather history provides some answers.
 
The table below shows the average first freeze date and and the earliest/latest first seasonal freeze on record.

Discussion:
 
It's possible a few locations could reach freezing Friday morning (October 29); but most of Texoma will probably just have some frost with lows in the 34-38 degree range.  
 
We've had later than average freezes the past 3 seasons, and will likely have a late one again this year.
The La Nina pattern we are in favors a delayed first freeze. Although some of the normal cold spots may get theirs closer to the norm, I suspect much of Texoma will not see a freeze until late November given the current and expected weather pattern.
 
Take Care,
