Are you having a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit with all of this heat? You’re not alone. It’s been unusually warm not only for South Texas but for many across the country. In fact, Denver recorded its first snowfall of the season on Friday -- ending a 232-day snow-free streak! It marks the latest measurable first snowfall in the city’s recorded history. The storm system that is bringing snow to Colorado will also bring a cool down for us. However, don’t expect the cool air to hang around for long. Here’s what you can expect over the next few days:

  • Friday featured near-record heat in San Antonio with a high of 83°. Elsewhere, temperatures were in the 90s around South Central Texas!
  • A cold front moved through in the predawn hours Saturday, with winds gusting from the north up to 45 mph & temperatures falling into the 50s
  • Winds calm and skies clear Saturday night, allowing for a cold Sunday morning. San Antonio will dip into the mid-30s, while outlying areas west and north of Loop 1604 will touch freezing.
  • A FREEZE WARNING has been issued for counties in light blue in the image at the top of this page. Please remember to make sure pets and animals have a warm place to stay
It'll be near-freezing Sunday morning (Copyright 2021 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)
  • Sunday will be sunny and cool.
  • A rapid warm-up occurs by Monday and warmth and humidity return to the forecast next week.
