February has been a wacky month for temperatures with warm, sunny days as well as stretches of chilly, drizzly weather. This week, we’ll get the best of both worlds, thanks to a dry cold front: sunshine AND cool temperatures!

Windy Wednesday

A cold front, which arrived Tuesday morning, has brought a gusty, north wind to South Texas. While sustained winds will be in the 15-25 mph range for most of the day on Wednesday, some wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible at times.

On top of the wind, high temperatures will only reach the mid-50s Wednesday. As a result, plan on it being a very chilly day! The good news? There will be plenty of sunshine!

Freeze Potential

When winds will become light Wednesday night, temperatures will drop like a rock! This will set us up for a light freeze early Thursday morning.

The best chance of a freeze will be along and north of Highway 90.

If you have any sensitive vegetation, you may want to consider planning ahead for Thursday morning. It would be best to cover or bring in any plants that would not respond well to the cold.
