Special Statement

Statement as of 6:36 AM CST on January 16, 2018

Expires 4:00 PM EST on January 16, 2018


... An Arctic blast is heading for the Rio Grande Valley this
morning...

... A wintry mix of precipitation expected from late Tuesday
through Wednesday...

A very strong Arctic cold front will move through deep south
Texas and the Rio Grande Valley this morning. In the wake of this
frontal passage, temperatures are expected to peak early this
morning in the upper 50s to lower 60s across the Rio Grande
Valley with the Mercury falling through the rest of the day.

As the Arctic air continues pushing into the region the
temperatures will drop steadily through tonight with overnight
lows bottoming out in the upper 20s to lower 30s across the
northern ranchlands and the Lower Valley with mid to upper 30s
expected near the coastline.

The temperatures will not warm up much on Wednesday with highs
struggling to reach into the mid to upper 30s. Overnight lows for
Wednesday night will drop down once again ranging from the lower
30s across the ranchlands to the mid 30s across the valley to the
upper 30s to lower 40s at the coast.

The combination of the cold temperatures and the persistent
northerly surface winds will produce dangerously low wind chill
values in the teens and 20s Tuesday night through sunrise
Wednesday. The wind chill values will remain in the 20s
throughout the day Wednesday.

The cold northerly winds will diminish Wednesday night which will
allow the wind chill values to increase slowly ranging in the
mid to upper 20s by Thursday morning.

In addition to the cold and cloudy conditions, the combination of
the passage of the cold front, an upper level disturbance moving
across the valley and a persistent coastal surface trough will
result in better precipitation chances from Tuesday through
Thursday. The precipitation will start off as all rain on today
with the frontal passage. As the much colder air moves into the
region and lowers temperatures, a wintry mix of precipitation will
be possible across much of deep south Texas around midweek. The
best chances for sleet, freezing rain or freezing drizzle will be
from Tuesday evening through Wednesday night.

The potential for freezing or frozen precipitation will then
decrease starting Thursday as the temperatures warm up late in
the week and drier air moves into the region.

Residents of deep south Texas should make preparations for this
cold outbreak and remember the four p's... protection of pipes,
plants, and pets. Stay tuned to the latest forecasts and
statements from the National Weather Service on this developing
winter weather situation.

Residents of deep south Texas and the Rio Grande Valley with
travel plans today and Wednesday should closely monitor this
developing weather situation.
