Sunshine melts the freeze Sunday in Central Texas


After two days of freezing temperatures, Central Texas will finally begin warming up on Sunday.

But not before an icy morning, when the National Weather Service warns that temperatures could linger in the low teens and 20s.

Winds in the day are expected to remain calm, moving from the south and southeast around 5 to 10 mph, according to forecasters. This will help cut some of the cold.

Sunshine through the day should bump temperatures up to a high around 49, the service says — before they dip again Sunday night to a low around 38 with some cloud cover.

Another hard freeze is not expected overnight.

Mostly sunny skies Monday will mean increasing heat, with some daily temperatures this week touching almost 80 degrees, according to forecasters.

Slight chances for thunderstorms reappear late in the week on Thursday and Friday, the service says.
