HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) — Temperatures across the RGV have been on the pleasant side, but that will change heading into the end of the week. Our next cold front will arrive to deep south Texas Thursday and increasing rain chances are in store. We could also see a few rumbles of thunder ahead of the front as it sweeps into the valley.
By this weekend, temperatures will remain well below average for this time of the year. This does include Valentine’s Day – temperatures will likely be in the 40s or low 50s much of the day with persistent drizzle or light shower activity.
As even colder air rushes in Sunday night late, it could interact and overlap with lingering moisture in Deep South Texas to create the threat for light freezing rain, freezing drizzle, or even light sleet at times. This would be most likely across the upper valley/northern ranchlands around daybreak Monday.
Right now, the window for frozen precipitation looks limited (6a-11a). This should preclude widespread, critical issues; however, this will have to be watched closely…stay tuned!
