Ice could make travel risky on New Year's weekend

Weather Forecast Tuesday December 26th

A strong arctic cold front will move through North and Central Texas Saturday with temperatures falling Saturday night and into New Year's Eve.

Some light rain is possible Saturday night as temperatures fall to the low 40s overnight. As you ring in the new year, temperatures will be in the 20s with wind chills in the teens or even single digits. New Year's Day will begin with clouds clearing and sunshine returning by the afternoon; but highs will struggle to reach 40 degrees. Saturday could see drizzle in the morning but as the day rolls on rain will increase and intensify. It won't be much warmer at all as afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 40s throughout the area.

Buckle up for plenty of cold air the next several days! This would leave little chance of winter precipitation.

Areas along and north of I-20 that see this wintry mix will certainly see the chance for some ice glazing on the roads and maybe some light accumulation, especially on bridges and overpasses.

In Grand Rapids, if you want to celebrate you can head over to West Michigan Jewels of Africa on Eastern Avenue. Kwanzaa celebrations usually feature songs, dances, storytelling, poetry reading, and a large meal.

Here is what I do think will happen next week, temperatures will be significantly below normal and a hard freeze is likely a couple of mornings.

Today is going to be another cold day. Skies should clear and with south winds, highs should climb to the low 60s.

Overnight lows will dip into the mid 20s across the Big Country and 30s in the Concho Valley. Wednesday will be very similar to Tuesday as well. That's 36-48 hours below the freezing mark, so take precautions to protect pipes, plants and pets in that timeframe. Again, this is for next week; so, you don't need to do that now.

"If possible, consider amending plans to avoid traveling during this timeframe", according to the notice.
