Planning for New Year’s Eve weatherDecember 30th, 2010 at 2:51 pm by Jim Spencer under Weather
We’re still expecting that New Year’s Eve cold front, although it won’t be nearly as strong as the front on Christmas Eve. In fact, the initial front Friday morning will be of Pacific origin, so temperatures are still expected to climb into the 60s during the day Friday.
Friday night a push of colder, Canadian air will settle across the area, dropping temperatures into the 40s before 10 p.m., and into the 30s by early New Year’s Day.
NEW YEAR’S EVE
Elevated fire weather conditions are forecast for Friday afternoon west of I-35 corridor. These conditions should be considered when making plans to use fireworks...especially when combined with the current drought conditions which will leave the area vulnerable to fires.
NEW YEAR’S DAY
Partly cloudy skies and near normal temperatures can be expected on New Years Day behind a cold front...forecast to push through New Years Eve. Breezy and dry conditions will continue over the Eastern Hill Country and adjacent areas of South Central Texas...making for elevated fire weather conditions.
