...strong cold front will move across south texas today...
...much colder with periods of light rain and drizzle tonight and
...cold with a chance for rain through the weekend...
a strong arctic cold front will move into south texas today. the
front will move into the victoria area and northern brush country
around mid morning...and then through the remainder of south texas
by early afternoon. temperatures this afternoon behind the front
will plummet into the 40s over the northern portions of south
texas...and 50s over the southern portions of the region.
temperatures will remain in the 40s thursday night and during most
of the day on friday...except for some upper 30s expected over the
victoria area friday morning. lows saturday morning will dip in
the lower to mid 30s over inland areas...with highs on saturday
only in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
these temperatures...in combination with a gusty north wind...will
result in a wind chill that makes it feel like it is in the 30s
during the day on friday and saturday...and in the mid to upper
20s friday night through saturday morning.
in addition...isolated to scattered showers will be possible along
and behind the front today. areas of light rain and drizzle are
expected tonight and friday as an upper level disturbance combines
with a coastal trough.
rain chances along with colder than normal weather will continue
into the weekend...as a coastal trough continues to impact the
area. although temperatures are expected to remain above the
freezing mark through the weekend...light rain or slick roads
could possibly freeze on bridges and over-passes especially over
the brush country...northern coastal bend and victoria area early
saturday morning... possibly even on sunday morning as rain
chances continue. however...by sunday daytime temperatures are
expected to reach the lower 50s so any hazardous bridges and
over-passes on sunday morning will be short-lived.
residents should prepare for these much colder temperatures
through much of the weekend. when going outside...make sure you
are properly dressed for these colder than normal temperatures.
when going outside...dress in a few layers of clothing and wear
gloves to protect your hands. make sure outdoor pets are protected
and check in on the elderly.
