Ending 2013 Chilly! - 12/28/13
We're down to the wire...2013 was a great year in so many ways and we're saying "ta-ta" with a Canadian cold front that will cause many of you to celebrate with a hefty jacket.
Sunday will be our last day of mild air before we turn windy & cold. If you still have those holiday decorations outside, go ahead and plan to take those down tomorrow. If not, you'll probably want to wait until next weekend.
Throughout your Sunday, temperatures will have a chance to warm into the upper 50s (Hill Country) to lower 60s (I-35 & Southeast) by the early afternoon. The approaching front should make it's way into Mason, Llano, & Burnet areas around sunset. I'm thinking we will begin to see those temperatures tumble in Austin between 7-9 PM...then crossing the rest of the viewing area before Midnight.
The overnight hours will be a bit tricky because we should have a breezy night. Therefore, I don't think we'll see widespread freezing temperatures, HOWEVER, there will be plenty of spots that do drop below 32. Monday night & Tuesday morning will be the night where everyone drops below freezing. I'd go ahead and make sure the house is all situated for another cold weather event as soon as possible.
New Year's Eve we should see more sunshine with a pretty cold day overall. Highs in the 50s but calm. New Year's Day looks much nicer. A little splurge of warm air will bring highs up into the mid 60s for the afternoon w/ partly cloudy skies. I know a lot of people will be attending a Flyboard Polar Plunge event near Hula Hut on Lake Austin that day so the forecast should be pretty nice for it.
I hope you all had a great 2013! Make 2014 the best one yet
