Good Morning! This is the one day of the year everyone else gets up as early as I do. I hope y'all get some good deals out there!
Stay safe on the roads today, and bring an extra jacket with you. Sporadic rain showers through the day, but a cold front will be pushing through (in fact it's just south of San Angelo right now) and bring much cooler temperatures and wind gusts into the 30 mph range. San Angelo's temperature dropped 21*F in three hours this morning after the front pushed through, but continues to rain....with wind. That puts their wind chill into the high 30's....and much of Hill Country can expect that, especially this evening. Temperatures will plummet into the 30's overnight and into the early morning north of the Highway 90, and wind chill values could drop into the 20's. Rain will continue through the day tomorrow. Rainfall will be heaviest through the Northern Edwards Plateau and Northern Hill Country...but more so along and north of the Interstate 20 and along the Interstate 35 Corridor north of Austin. Some isolated areas through the Central Texas region may see up to 4 inches of rain through the remainder of the week, but most will only see between 1-3 inches. From Abilene- north into the Panhandle and Western Oklahoma, an ice storm is expected today. Be safe!
