SAN ANGELO – An Arctic cold front will make its way south into the Concho Valley late Thursday bringing much colder temperatures and a very slight chance for some frozen precipitation.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service office in San Angelo anticipate the cold front to move into the Big Country early Thursday and the Concho Valley and Heartland late in the day. Winds will shift to the north Thursday afternoon and temperatures will begin to drop from highs around 80 degrees.
Temperatures tonight will range from around 20 degrees in the northern counties to around 30 along the I-10 corridor around Sonora. There is a very slight chance of freezing rain or even light snow from Eldorado north to Bronte and Robert Lee but no accumulation is expected.
Road conditions in the Concho Valley should be good while there is a chance for icing on bridges and overpasses in the areas around Abilene and north from there.
Temperatures will fall even farther Friday night with 20 degree readings region wide expected by Saturday morning. There is also a very slight chance of some frozen precipitation early Saturday morning but no accumulations are expected. Roadways should be clear for the most part.
A warming trend with more spring like weather will begin Saturday afternoon region wide. Concern for dangerous wildfire conditions returns with the warmer weather over the weekend.
