THE NEXT COLD FRONT
We're going to be mild overnight with temps in the upper 50s to low 60s along with areas of dense fog and patchy drizzle.  You'll wake up and it will pretty comfortable outside even with the fog and some stray showers.  By midday temps could warm into the mid to upper 60s.  By afternoon some spots could reach low 70s!  I'm forecasting 68 in Austin for now.  Ahead of and along the cold front which will push through Austin late afternoon, we could see scattered showers and isolated t-storms.  Behind the front, we'll watch a drastic temp drop (20 degree drop in a couple hours possible) with winds picking up out of the north 15-25 mph with gusts 30 to 40 mph possible.  As the cold air filters in, temps will fall to freezing in the Hill Country Wednesday night and in the I-35 corridor Thursday morning.  That could mean another round of ice possible.

MORE ICE?
Winter Weather Advisories (and possibly Winter Storm Warnings for the Hill Country) are possible.  The key times are Wednesday night after midnight and Thursday before noon when temps at or below freezing area possible in the Hill Country, and probably Thursday between about 4 AM and 10 AM in the I-35 corridor.  Ice - a combination of freezing rain then sleet is possible - with up to 1/10" of glaze possible, mainly on elevated surfaces. 

COWBOY BREAKFAST
If you're planning to head to Rodeo Austin's annual kick-off event Friday at the Long Center - plan on wearing lots of layers!  I'm forecasting a temp of 27 with wind chills in the upper teens to low 20s for the event which is scheduled from 6 to 9 AM.

IT'S MY PARK DAY
Thousands of volunteers will be heading to parks across Austin Saturday morning to help clean up and beautify them.  The forecast?  Partly cloudy and with temps in the mid to upper 30s at 9 AM when the event starts...so bundle up!  I'll be taking part in the Dove Springs Playground clean-up along with several other KEYE staffers.  If you'd like to volunteer your time, it's not too late to sign up: Here's a link to the clean-up sites and volunteers still needed: http://www.austinparks.org/multi-project-list.html?eventid=861
