Freezing cold start to Thursday, possible snow on NYE

Freezing cold start to Thursday, possible snow on NYE

Some intermittent sunshine may return Friday and Saturday with temperatures returning to the 50s or low 60s, but the milder weather will be short-lived. According to weather.gov, patchy freezing fog could develop once again overnight leading to slick roads, bridges and overpasses. The weekend is still the most interesting phase of the forecast. Forecast models are still uncertain but it looks like temperatures will be cold enough to produce some isolated sleet and freezing rain Sunday night and Monday morning, primarily north of a line from Austin to Giddings.

Arctic air will be fully entrenched by New Year's Eve. Afternoon highs will only be in the low to mid-40s.

A cold front will move through on New Year's Eve and as moisture comes up from the southwest, a cold rain will be ongoing throughout the day. Preparations should be completed sometime today through Saturday in order to avoid rain and the extreme cold.

There is some hint that light precipitation could also accompany the Arctic cold front, but the probability is now only 20 percent.

Tuesday will likely be the coldest morning with lows in the low to mid 20s and highs near 40.

Forecasters are still keeping just a little precipitation in the forecast for now but it seems to be confined to the north and east, with some mention of freezing/frozen precipitation. As you ring in the new year, temperatures will be in the 20s with wind chills in the teens or even single digits. We may finally get above freezing briefly by Tuesday afternoon, with a slow warmup (40s) as we head toward the weekend. Make sure you're properly prepared for the cold and that your family and friends are taken care of. Temperatures in the teens are pipe-bursting cold.
