Cold front making its way towards the region, passing through the pan handle. After another warm afternoon, mother nature will take a dramatic u-turn toward freezing. Conditions are expected to drop starting tonight as the front pushes south. Winds will switch to the north overnight into the early morning hours dropping temps to the low 40's upper 30's. By Thursday afternoon expecting the front through San Angelo and the majority of the Concho Valley dropping temperatures even cooler. By 5pm, our normal daytime high, temps will near 28 degrees with winds from the north 10 to 15 miles per hour. Those winds will make wind chill a factor helping temperatures feel more like between 19 and 25 degrees. Rain chances pick up with the front turning to freezing rain as we drop below freezing. Thursday night into Friday looks to be our biggest concern, with the north and east getting hit the hardest. Through Friday ice accumulations will be around a quarter of an inch with the I-10 corridor only seeing about 1/10". The biggest concern is unlike the front last month, temperatures will stay below freezing, not allowing ice to melt, but instead accumulate. Driving conditions could become dangerous so take extra precaution and avoid the loop. At the same time some power outages may also be a possibility as ice will form along the lines. Stay safe this weekend, as we struggle to warm up to the 40's by Sunday.
