REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN ANGELO TX
1044 AM CST WED DEC 4 2013
Late this morning, skies were fair to partly cloudy across the Lone
Star State. Two cold fronts were moving south through north Texas
and the Panhandle the first front was just south of a line from
Wichita Falls to Lubbock. The arctic front was just south of
Amarillo. Behind the fronts winds were from the north at 5 to 15
mph, with temperatures mainly in the 20s and 30s. Ahead of the
front, wind were light and variable, with temperatures mainly in the
50s and 60s.
And now here`s a forecast summary for West Central Texas:
Unseasonably warm temperatures will continue today. Then, another
strong cold front will bring very cold air and the potential for
more winter precipitation for the second half of this week. As the
cold front moves south across West Central Texas, beginning around
midnight tonight, expect gusty north winds and a wintry
precipitation mix of either sleet or freezing rain to begin across
the Big Country. For tomorrow, accumulations of freezing rain or
sleet will likely reach one quarter inch across the Big Country.
Thus, we currently have a Winter Storm Watch in effect for all the
Big Country from noon CST Thursday through noon CST Friday. On
Friday, either sleet or freezing rain may linger until around noon.
In addition, gusty north surface winds and lows in the teens, will
create wind chill numbers near zero degrees Thursday night and
Friday night, mainly across the Big Country, Concho Valley, and
Heartland. Wind chill this cold is very dangerous. So, please be
prepared if you`re outside either of these nights.
