Arctic front arrives this weekend; wintry weather possible Sunday

A strong arctic cold front will move through North and Central Texas Saturday with temperatures falling Saturday night and into New Year's Eve. Northeasterly winds will remain in the 5 to 10 miles per hour range and that will make it feel even colder with wind chills in the 20s.

Freezing temperatures are making for some interesting roadside icicles across the High Country as well as causing lakes to start freezing over. Saturday, expect clouds to return with highs approaching 60 degrees. Temperatures remained well below freezing through the afternoon over most of the Ozarks with above freezing temperatures relegated to areas near and west of I-49. Skies should clear and with south winds, highs should climb to the low 60s. The computer models are beginning to show some agreement, and they show the bulk of the moisture moving out before the coldest air arrives.

It's important to note that significant adjustments may be necessary with this forecast for both temperatures and precipitation.

Very Cold Day Ahead For Green Country

According to the National Weather Service, Temperatures definitely continue to look VERY cold for New YearsEve through Tuesday. Some places could struggle to get out of the 30s.

Frigid weather is expected to reach the Big Apple just in time to chill those visiting Times Square, though the record low of minus 4 F from 1918 will not be challenged. Mornings will be in the low 20s early next week and some spots may briefly dip into the teens. Highs Tuesday hold in the 30s, while 40s are possible Wednesday as both days will be mainly sunny. This will be some of the coldest conditions we've seen for our area in a while, so make sure you have that warm gear ready. Avoid driving, if possible.
