—- FROM YOUR KSAN STORM TEAM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JOSH JOHNS —-
Wednesday started off very cold with low temperatures bottoming out in the 20s. 26 was the official low at Mathis Field. As the sun rose through, dry air, and breezy southwest winds pushed our afternoon highs all the way into the lower 70s, except over our southern areas where clouds were more stubborn during the day.
Those clouds pushed north into San Angelo during the evening, and if we can get a break in them, you’ll be able to see the Geminids Meteor shower which peaks tonight between Midnight and 2am. If those clouds hold on longer, it’ll actually keep us from seeing a freeze, but I think we’ll still see one by morning.
A cold front will slide into the Concho Valley during the morning Thursday bringing in a colder air mass. Temperatures will only climb into the low 60s on Thursday, and upper 50s on Friday.
Another cold front will slide into the area on Saturday along with a weak upper level disturbance swinging across from Mexico. That will increase your cloud cover for the weekend and could lead to a few showers Saturday and Sunday. Right now the best chance looks to be over the southeastern Concho Valley. Chances are slim, as they’ll only be around 10%.
Dry air will work in behind that disturbance leading to a sunnier start to the new week.
Make it a great Thursday!
