It’s been a topsy-turvy week of weather across South Central Texas! More changes are on the way as a strong cold front is moving through the area Friday morning. Behind this front, there will be a widespread, late-season freeze by Saturday morning.

Here’s what you need to know:


Winds will gust up to 45 mph through Friday night (Copyright 2022 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)
  • A strong cold front moved through South Central Texas Friday morning
  • Behind the front, temperatures have dropped into the 40s and that’s where they’ll stay through the afternoon
  • Skies will clear from west to east during the afternoon, with clear skies across the area by late tonight
  • Winds will gust from the north up to 40-45 mph through Friday night, making it feel like it’s in the 20s & 30s


A widespread freeze is likely Friday night (Copyright 2022 by KSAT - All rights reserved.)
  • A late-season freeze will occur Friday night/Saturday morning for the entire KSAT viewing area
  • Another freeze is possible Saturday night/Sunday morning for at least a portion of the area


  • Without another strong front in the forecast next week, temperatures will be much more seasonable and even-keeled
