Sun Returns Friday-Extreme Cold Next Week

Sun Returns Friday-Extreme Cold Next Week

The front will come in from the northwest early Saturday afternoon, bringing below freezing temperatures and the threat of freezing precipitation, according to the notice.

Wind chill values this morning are bottoming out near ZERO degrees in quite a few locations thanks to a gusty northeast wind tacked on to actual temperatures in the teens.

Freezing temperatures are making for some interesting roadside icicles across the High Country as well as causing lakes to start freezing over. A chance of drizzle and showers could turn into icy road conditions, and the Texas Department of Transportation will pre-treat roads heading into the weekend.

We will see a slight "warming" trend, if you want to call it that, to end the week as highs moderate back to the lower 40s on Thursday and Friday, though clouds will hang tough with partly to mostly cloudy skies overall.

These days could be the coldest so far this winter, the NWS reports. Monday would even see some wintry mix, but this all depends on the amount of moisture available along with the right temperatures through the atmosphere as the precipitation falls.

According to the National Weather Service, Temperatures definitely continue to look VERY cold for New YearsEve through Tuesday. Tonight, clouds stick with us and temperatures hover near freezing. Some places could struggle to get out of the 30s. The rains will be very light, and only minor accumulation of ice is possible on bridges and overpasses. This means at least two mornings with a hard freeze across most of Southwest Louisiana.

The three P's - plants, pipes, and pets - will need a fourth P - protection - over the New Year's weekend, and beyond. But I want to give you enough time to make plans.
