Sun Returns Friday-Extreme Cold Next Week

Weather Forecast Tuesday December 26th

The clouds will return overnight and into Friday with temperatures dropping into the upper 10s by Friday morning, then rebounding into the middle 30s Friday afternoon. Keep in mind, it doesn't take much to cause slick spots, especially on bridges and overpasses.

Temperatures in Minneapolis are forecast to fail to exceed zero F over the weekend. Conditions should improve by mid morning with rain ending and temperatures climbing above freezing in all areas.

It's important to note that significant adjustments may be necessary with this forecast for both temperatures and precipitation. A slight chance for wintry precipitation will be possible for New Years Eve, mainly north of a Brownwood to Sweetwater line. Preparations should be completed sometime today through Saturday in order to avoid rain and the extreme cold.

NEW YEAR'S EVE: A deep trough digs down into the Southeast and the floodgates of the Arctic will be wide open spilling frigid air into the U.S. Our next surge of cold air arrives on Sunday when it looks like temperatures will remain in the 30s all day. Skies should clear and with south winds, highs should climb to the low 60s.

Brutally cold weather will soon be refreshed as another bout of arctic air dives through the United States. With such a difference in models, though, confidence is low, but worth mentioning considering the holiday.

Otherwise wind chills will be in the teens Sunday evening for New Year's festivities.

On Wednesday, East Texas temperatures should rebound to the mid 20s at night, and the 40s during the day. We may finally get above freezing briefly by Tuesday afternoon, with a slow warmup (40s) as we head toward the weekend.

Make sure to have your faucets dripping inside and pipes insulated! Temperatures in the teens can be deadly for pets and people too.
