Get Ready For A Big Freeze, Texas!

The next two days will feature warmer weather across most of Texas. Enjoy it, and use that time to prepare for a significant cold weather event this weekend into early next week. Preparations that require advance notice, such as wrapping pipes and moving plants, should begin.

We’ll see gusty winds this morning into early this afternoon before they calm down by sunset. Thursday will be windy across Texas, with the strongest winds arriving behind a cold front that’ll progress east across Texas Thursday afternoon through Friday morning. Wind gusts across the western third of Texas may exceed 55 MPH, with 40 to 50 MPH gusts in the eastern two-thirds of Texas Thursday night into Friday.

Snow showers or snow squalls are possible in the Texas Panhandle Thursday evening. Where pockets of moderate to heavy snow develop, we could see one to three inches of new snowfall. Like a few days ago, the highest chance for this will be along and north of Interstate 40 in the Panhandle. Strong winds would create blowing snow and near-blizzard conditions… again.

Scattered thunderstorms are possible between 10 PM Thursday and 6 AM Friday along and east of Interstate 35 from the Red River south to Austin – east to Arkansas and Louisiana. The eastward-moving cold front will cause thunderstorm chances. Some thunderstorms may become strong to severe with localized damaging wind gusts, pocket-change size hail, and a non-zero threat of spinup tornadoes. A low threat for more isolated supercell thunderstorms ahead of the cold front exists early Friday morning in the Ark-La-Tex and East Texas. While not likely, if this scenario unfolds – the threat of tornadoes would increase. This will be a completely nocturnal (overnight) event. We’ll update you on the latest trends and the forecast as we head into tomorrow night. Precipitation chances will end in Texas on Friday morning.

Friday afternoon through Saturday morning look like a lull for Texas, though colder air will filter into the northern half of Texas. It’ll be very cold in the Texas Panhandle. This will not be our arctic cold front. That begins to arrive in the Panhandle Saturday afternoon.

About an 18-hour time difference remains between the fastest and slowest weather models regarding the arctic cold front’s arrival this weekend. I’m betting on a faster progression, with the northern third of Texas on Saturday night and the remainder of Texas on Sunday. There will be a thirty-five to fifty-degree temperature drop, with brutal wind chills. The northern third of Texas should prepare for sub-freezing temperatures from Saturday night through Tuesday afternoon. Some locations in Texoma and the Ark-La-Tex may remain below freezing until Wednesday. All of Texas will experience a freeze on Monday morning and Tuesday morning. Temperatures will fall below zero in the Texas Panhandle Monday and Tuesday mornings. Wind chill temperatures will be fifteen to twenty-five degrees below zero. Single-digit low temperatures are expected along and north of Interstate 20 from the Permian Basin east through West Texas, Northwest Texas, the Big Country, Texoma, North Texas, and Northeast Texas Monday and Tuesday morning. Temperatures into the teens will likely be near Interstate 10 by Tuesday morning.

There is some chance (20-30%) for winter precipitation on Monday in Texoma, North Texas and Northeast Texas. While we have high confidence in a cold air outbreak across Texas, confidence in winter precipitation early next week is much lower – and will depend on the track of upper-level storm systems. We will not have a repeat of February 2021, where we had snow/ice accumulations across the entire state – nor will we remain below freezing for a week. Temperatures will also not approach the February 2021 disaster, though make no mistake – it will be very cold and dangerous to those without access to heat and shelter. We'll begin warming back up beginning Tuesday.



The next two days will feature warmer weather across most of Texas. Enjoy it, and use that time to prepare for a significant cold weather event this weekend ...
