.. This Morning’s Low Temperatures .. No Records (My Error in Yesterday’s Update) ..

At KAUS/Austin Bergstrom International Airport, the official morning low today was 16F at 340am..
at KATT/ Austin City Camp Mabry (ANG), the official low was 21F at 659am. Please note that I
made an error
in transcribing the records in yesterday’s update (Austin Bergstrom International
Airport record low for today
was 13F on 08Jan2010) so neither of this morning’s lows were
records; it has been colder on this date

At AGHT2/Austin Great Hills NWS COOP weather station in northwest Austin, I recorded
a low this morning of 17.7F recorded at 713am CT.

The LCRA Hydromet recorded lows in our IH35 corridor counties as low as… 12F at
Jonestown and Driftwood.. 13F at Oak Hill, Florence, Lago Vista, Dripping Springs, Elgin,
Jollyville, and Rosanky.

FAA Airport AWOS weather observing platforms reported San Marcos with a low of 16F and
Georgetown with a low of 18F.

For official morning lows, here is a link to a public information statement (PNS) product,

FAA, CoCoRahS)…

… A Warming Trend Underway Beginning Today into the New Week …

After the very hard freeze in most areas again overnight, with plenty of sunshine, light surface winds
at the sunrise will shift back southerly at 5 to 10 mph today and the warming trend will begin with
highs back in the 40s to near 50 in a few locations. This warming trend will continue into the new week.

This is my final update on this weather situation..
