Arctic Blast 2011, Take Two !
Temperatures in North Texas have already plummeted since this afternoon as another arctic blast makes it way towards South Texas. At least we know that these frigid fronts dont' have anything against visiting Laredo. As an example of just how much of a weather change we can expect, Heatwave was telling us tonight about the little town of Wink, Texas. At 4pm, their temperature was a mild 74 degrees. By 10pm, the mercury had dropped all the way to a chilling 18 degrees. For you non-math majors, that's a difference of 56 degrees in just 6 hours.
The forecasted cold for Laredo is not as drastic as last week's. Nevertheless, we're expected to have at least two nights/mornings of below freezing temperatures. The lows for both Thursday and Friday mornings should be in the upper 20s. This time around, no freezing precipation is in the forecast, I'm glad to say. It will be very windy so bundle up for a blustery day.
