Near record-breaking cold in store for the Crossroads

With a cold front coming through the area Monday evening, some areas could be looking at near record-breaking temperatures Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, including us here in the Crossroads.

Veterans Day could see some rain, as moisture pools ahead of the strong cold front. Any showers that do develop will be isolated in nature. Highs will rise into the upper 70s, under mostly cloudy skies. As the front approaches Monday evening, showers and thunderstorms will become more scattered and numerous across the area. Temperatures will rapidly fall into the 30s for lows on Monday night.

Tuesday is going to be really, REALLY cold. With a blustery north wind around 20MPH, highs will crawl into the upper 40s, with a chance of rain possible as well. That night is when we could see records broken, as models are forecasting 33°F for Victoria and our record low is 32°F. A light frost could be possible across the Crossroads, especially in northern counties that could dip below freezing.

The rest of the week will see a warming trend, with temperatures gradually rising into the upper 60s by next weekend, and the rain slowly tapering off throughout the week. So break out your winter jackets and don’t forget your rain gear!
