AUSTIN (KXAN) — Low temperatures dipped to 29° in Austin, a record cold 24° at ABIA, and the upper teens in some Hill Country valleys.
A combination of clear skies, calm winds and very dry winter air led to the coldest morning in Austin since January 18. This first freeze of the season came 2-3 weeks ahead of when we typically see it at Camp Mabry.
One more freeze should be expected tonight outside of downtown Austin, but temperatures tomorrow morning will be several degrees milder than they were this morning as humidity starts to increase slightly again.
