SAN ANTONIO – A large swath of south Texas will dip down below freezing temperatures over the next 48 hours.
The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for Wednesday and Thursday morning for counties stretching along and south of Highway 90. The warning includes the San Antonio area.
KENS 5 meteorologist Paul Mireles said for many this will be the first freeze of the season.
“If you have some plants, bring them inside and don’t forget about your pets,” said Mireles.
Tuesday morning KENS 5 First Alert Radar showed scattered rain falling out west near Del Rio and a few isolated flurries near Kerrville and north to Burnet.
KENS 5 Futurecast calls for a break in the clouds around noon in San Antonio with an expected high around 55 degrees. “It will still feel quite cool though because of the breeze conditions,” said Mireles.
Looking ahead to Thanksgiving the afternoon high will reach the upper 50’s with partly cloudy skies. A strong winter storm system will likely impact east coast travel plans over the Thanksgiving holiday. A warming trend will breeze through south Texas by the weekend with high temps in the 70’s.
