Temperatures will start to moderate during the day Friday and this trend will continue through Sunday. There will be a chance of rain showers east of a Bowie to Lampasas line Saturday night and east of a Sherman to Temple line Sunday. A cold front will move into the Sherman to Comanche areas late Sunday afternoon and through the rest of North and Central Texas Sunday night. The air behind this front will not be nearly as cold as the most recent cold front. Expect lows Sunday and Monday night in the 30s and 40s with highs Monday and Tuesday in the 50s to lower 60s.
An arctic cold front will move through North and Central Texas overnight tonight. There is a chance of some light drizzle or light rain south of I-20/I-30. In the area from Cisco to north of Meridian to Hamilton to Goldthwaite, temperatures are expected to fall into the mid 20s to around 30 degrees before the precipitation ends in this area. Ground temperatures are still relatively warm, so no significant travel problems are expected, but some light icing could occur on elevated surfaces.
It will be cloudy, windy and cold Thursday with highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s. During the morning, there will be a slight chance of a wintry mix of light rain/freezing rain and/or sleet along and southwest of a Cisco to Stephenville to Meridian to Killeen line. Farther east there is a slight chance of light rain. The precipitation is expected to end before midday.
It will be cold Thursday night/Friday morning. Temperatures will fall from the 30s at sunset to the upper teens northeast to upper 20s south by daybreak. Wind chill readings will be as low as the mid teens to lower 20s.
With the expected arctic air intrusion Wednesday night through Friday, remember to keep the 4 P's in mind for protection against the frigid temperatures expected. Protect pipes, faucets, and sensitive plants, as well as preparing outdoor pets and people without ample heating for the impending chilly weather ahead. Also, shut off sprinklers as they can cause icy patches on roads and sidewalks resulting in injuries! Check your heater to ensure its functioning properly before the cold weather arrives.
