Frigid Temps For The Holiday!November 24th, 2013 at 4:56 pm by Matt Barrentine under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
All aboard a late fall roller coaster as we head towards Thanksgiving!
First stop will be a sharp drop in temperatures Sunday night into Monday morning. We’ll wake up to lows in the mid 30s in our metro areas and a light freeze for many inland spots. Monday afternoon it will warm only into the 50s before…
The next stop will be a developing system off the coast of Texas. This low will deepen sharply and create a lot of rain as it tracks across the northern Gulf. We should start seeing rain by Monday evening in western areas. The rain will increase and spread east overnight Monday into Tuesday morning.
COLD BLAST WEDNESDAY
The third stop on this coaster will be a sharp drop in temps next Wednesday. As that strong low works up the East coast and becomes a nor’easter a strong flow of chilly northern air will be funneled into the Gulf Coast turning temps upside down Wednesday with a cold morning in the upper 40s turning into a frigid and blustery afternoon in the low 40s!
After that cold blast Wednesday, with each run of the models the numbers just keep dropping for Thanksgiving morning. It’s now likely we’ll have widespread 20s and possibly a hard freeze for inland areas! By the afternoon it will be sunny and around 50 degrees.
Black Friday morning will be for the hardy with temps around freezing!
