The last day of the work week was sunny with temperatures close to our normal high of 61 degrees. Austin-Mabry recorded a high of 58 degrees while the Austin-Airport was a couple of degrees cooler with a high of 56 degrees. Our winds were much lighter coming in out of the north around 5-15 mph.
High pressure will take over our weather this weekend. We can expect plenty of sunshine, light northeast winds and frigid low temperatures in the 20s but afternoon highs in the upper 40s/low-mid 50s.
We'll feel some comfort come back for the MLK Day holiday on Monday with highs near 60, then another arctic blast hits Monday night and Tuesday morning. This next blast could have some winter weather accompany it, especially on Tuesday morning through early afternoon. We still have several questions but we do know that the arctic front will arrive with some precipitation. Will the cold air intersect the precipitation just in time to change the cold rain over to some freezing rain, sleet or even some snow? That's the big question right now. Stay tuned an we'll keep you posted. One thing is for sure... temperatures will be much cooler with daytime highs in the 30s on Tuesday and the 40s Wednesday and Thursday.
