Austin, Texas (KXAN) — We are waking up to another widespread freeze, but a blanket of high clouds is keeping temperatures from bottoming out. Austin-Bergstrom may still end up with a record low temperature this morning, however, as temperatures briefly dipped into the upper 20s.
Clouds are streaming in this morning as an upper-level low over Mexico moves towards Texas. Periods of light rain are forecast to return this evening, with widespread cold rain a likelihood tonight. Precipitation that falls will be liquid rain this go-around, and not the recent wintry mix. A quarter to a half an inch of rainfall is expected for most areas, and rain ends midday Thursday.
Milder sunshine returns Friday into the coming weekend, with just a slight chance of rain on Sunday.
