Surge of cold air on the move, expected to arrive in San Antonio Friday

Areas of Hill Country could see first freeze of season

SAN ANTONIO – Temperatures Thursday afternoon remained unseasonably warm, with highs ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s across the region under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.

The big weather story is the cold front we’ve talked about the entire week. It is now pushing through the 4-corners area, bringing snowfall to much of Colorado and Wyoming.

We won’t see snowfall in South Texas, but we’ll see some of the coldest temperatures this season.

The cold front is forecast to move through the Alamo City around midday Friday.  Folks will feel the front move in as winds increase out of the north around 15-25 mph, with higher gusts possible. In addition, there may be a few isolated showers and storms with frontal passage, but most will stay to our east with no severe weather anticipated.

If you have weekend plans to be outdoors, the sunshine will be out and skies will be clear. Mornings will require a jacket, as overnight lows will fall into the lower 40s on Saturday and mid 30s on Sunday.  Portions of the Hill Country will see some frost on Sunday morning. Afternoon highs will remain in the middle to upper 60s and will be much more seasonal for this time of year.

If you are a fan of the colder weather, enjoy the weekend. Moisture and warmer temperatures will return by early next week and highs will recuperate back into the middle to upper 70s, with lows in the mid to upper 50s.  Clouds will also be back in the picture.

At this time, Thanksgiving looks dry, with highs in the lower 70s after morning lows in the upper 40s with mostly cloudy skies. 

Stay tuned!
