AUSTIN (KXAN) — Camp Mabry dipped to 29° this morning, while ABIA recorded a record cold morning with a low of 24°. This was the coldest temperature at Camp Mabry since January 18.
Today was Austin's first official freeze since February of last winter. This first freeze came two to three weeks ahead of schedule compared to when we typically record our first fall freeze. Some lows in the Hill Country were as cold as 18 degrees.
Another freezing cold night is expected tonight outside of downtown Austin (lows dip to 33 degrees in town), but nights get much warmer as we head into the weekend. Sunny days and lighter north winds will boost temperatures each day through Friday.
Highs should approach 70 again by Friday, and climb to the low 70s Saturday. Great weather is forecast for Texas tailgaters, with increasing clouds and cool, but dry weather expected for Saturday night's game. Temperatures will be in the 60s.
Another cold front will bring back a chance of rain Sunday, with rain chances remaining in the forecast through Wednesday. Drier weather is expected by Thanksgiving Day.
