Freeze Warning Issued For Portions of Central Texas
The first freeze of the season is possible tonight
(KWTX) - The combination of clear skies, diminishing winds, and dry air will lead to a rapid drop in the temperatures overnight across Central Texas.
Lows Friday morning are expected to dip down into the low-to-mid 30s in most locations. Widespread freezing temperatures are not currently forecast for our area, but some areas across the northern half of Central Texas could drop to freezing.
As a result, the National Weather Services has issued a Freeze Warning for McLennan, Hill, Bosque, Hamilton, Mills, and San Saba counties until 8 am Friday.
Areas of Central Texas that don’t see a freeze, could see some patchy frost develop Friday morning.
Consider protecting sensitive vegetation, bringing pets indoors, shutting off sprinkler systems, and if using a space heater keep flammables at least 3 feet away.
If we do see a freeze Friday morning, it will a little earlier than normal for our first freeze.
We typically see our first freeze around November 22nd. Last year our first freeze occurred on November 16th
