A strong cold front moved through on Friday, following the departure of the remnants of what was Hurricane Zeta. Winds have shifted to the NNW and colder air will filter in for Friday night into Saturday.

Cold temperatures at daybreak Saturday. Most areas are forecast to be at or below freezing.

High pressure will be in control on Saturday but will quickly depart Saturday night and a return flow of milder air (and moisture) will move in for Sunday before another cold front moves through Sunday afternoon.


  • Low level clouds
  • Some scattered, light drizzle possible, during the mid to late afternoon.
  • Low temperature early morning 39.3º sd 1.6º (NBM model) Blue Bell
  • High temp 52.9º sd 2.4º (NBM model) Blue Bell area.
  • Winds E–>SE 10-12 mph with gusts to 15 mid afternoon.

Note that the NBM mean temperature’s sd (standard deviation) is very large.  Be advised that several models have high temperatures only in the upper 40s!


An interesting weather week coming up, as a tropical system will move into the Louisiana area and merge with a strong non-tropical low pressure system in the Midwest.  This will affect us later in the week, likely Thursday into Friday.
