Freezing weather to turn pleasant for the weekend
Wed, 29 Jan 2014 17:45:00 GMT —
The deep chill will continue Wednesday before conditions improve to above average conditions by the end of the week.
A Wind Chill Advisory for Cameron, Willacy, and Kenedy counties will continue until 11 a.m. due to the combination of low temperatures and breezy winds.
All other advisories and warnings for the area have been cancelled following a one-two punch of cold air and moisture that combined to drop a mix of rain, sleet, and freezing rain.
Temperatures Wednesday should top out in the 40's with mostly cloudy skies before high pressure settles in Thursday.
Skies will begin to partially clear with temperatures rebouding to the upper 60's, normal for this time of year.
By the weekend, we'll round the top of yet another "rollercoaster" like pattern with highs in the 70's to 80's.
According to the National Weather Service-Brownsville, the latest arctic blast was the fifth time this winter where daytime high temperatures have decreased sharply by greater than 30 degrees in a 12-24 hour period.
