A freeze is possible Tuesday night at the coattails of this week’s arctic cold front, said meteorologists.
The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for Llano, Burnet, Blanco and Travis counties as well as several surrounding areas. The warning extends from midnight Tuesday night to 9 a.m. on Wednesday, and said lows of between 26 and 32 degrees could be expected.
Residents should remember to cover up plants and bring pets indoors overnight.
LCRA Meteorologist Bob Rose said "windy and much colder weather is spreading south across Texas today (Tuesday) behind an arctic cold front,” he said. "Late this morning, the front was pushing south out of Central Texas, stretching from near Lufkin to Brenham, to Hondo to Ozona.”
Rose predicts that the temperatures will remain around the upper 50s through the middle of the week.
"Wednesday’s weather will be sunny but cool,” he wrote. "A mostly clear sky is forecast Wednesday night, allowing for the temperature to again become very cold. Another freeze is forecast across the Hill Country and most of Central Texas. Lows Thursday morning look to be near 27 to 30 degrees across the Hill Country near 29 to 34 degrees across Central Texas... Mostly sunny and warmer weather is forecast Thursday as the arctic air mass begins moving off to the east.”
According to Weather.com, Wednesday will see a high of 55 degrees and a low of 32, and Thursday will see a high of 68 and a low of 48 with a 20 percent chance of rain. Friday will be partly cloudy with a high of 74 degrees with a low of 60 and a 10 percent chance of rain.
