Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
(December 19, 2012)—Winter may be just a couple of days away, but it felt more like late spring or early summer Wednesday as the official temperature rose to a record high of 81.
That breaks the old record of 79 set in 1977.
Central Texas also set a record Wednesday for a record high minimum temperature.
The low Wednesday was 61, four degrees warmer than the old record of 57 set in 1962.
High-temperature records fell around the state Wednesday, but a cold front should drop the mercury into the 30s overnight.
