Coldest This Season, More Wintry Mix?
After a difficult morning with ice on elevated roads and surfaces, temps barely made it above freezing in the Austin area and stayed at or below freezing for much of the Hill Country and Williamson County. If you think it feels cold now, just wait!
COLDEST THIS SEASON
Overnight, cloudy skies and blustery winds will continue...but it will be DRY, at least! Temps fall into the low to mid 20s in the Austin area and we could see some lows in the teens out in the Hill Country. These temps will be the coldest this season for many areas, and it will feel even colder because of the north winds blowing 10 to 20 mph. Plan on wind chills in the single digits to teens in the Hill Country and teens for the I-35 Corridor points east. Protect people, pets, plants & pipes!
RECORD COLD POSSIBLE
We won't set any record lows in Austin. I'm forecasting 24 at Camp Mabry (the record is 16 set in 1950). But we will likely set record low highs Saturday. The coldest high temp at Camp Mabry for December 7th was 36 in 1972 and 40 in 1972 at ABIA. I'm forecasting 33 for Camp Mabry and 34 at ABIA. Many areas in the Hill Country will go a second straight day below freezing on Saturday!
MORE WINTRY MIX?
It's not certain, but one more disturbance pushes in late Saturday into Sunday morning. With it, we could see some light moisture, and as we saw early Friday, it doesn't take much to cause issues on untreated elevated roads, bridges and overpasses. This time, the most likely locations for the moisture are east of I-35. I have a 20% chance of freezing drizzle in Austin, but a 30% chance for the Plains late Saturday into Sunday morning. Moisture is limited, so most areas will see less than .05" of precipitation. The farther west you go, the lower the chance of any precipitation.
