Snow Flurries and Sleet for the RGV
This cold, wet, breezy weather will hang on a while longer. Daytime highs will be stuck in the low 40's Thursday and with a gusty north winds it will feel more like the mid 30's.
The chance for rain is going to improve throughout the day Thursday as cold air and moisture clash over Deep South Texas. The spittle of mist and showers will become more substantial, widespread, showers by evening.
The crucial part to the weather story is the risk of flurries and sleet. The best chance for wintry precipitation will be early Friday morning between 4am and 6am. The more reliable forecast models are pushing a mix of rain, sleet and flurries into the upper Valley as far east and south as McAllen. The good news is temperatures are expected to remain well above freezing so no accumulation is expected. Bridges and overpasses will be a concern since they can freeze while the air temperature is above 32°.
Friday morning starts out cold and wet, the wind chill will be in the mid 20's, but by the end of the day we will see an end to the rain and rapid clearing of the clouds. Clear skies overnight will allow temperatures to dip into the mid 30's for Saturday morning.
