Potent Cold Front Arriving in Texas on New Years Eve

This will be the final voyage of the Texas Weather Roundup… for 2023! Worry not; we’ll be back to ring in 2024 on Monday! We’ll experience a decent warmup across most of Texas on Saturday and, technically, Sunday before the cold front rings in the New Year with strong northwest winds.

Rain chances for the eastern quarter of Texas Sunday evening have decreased. We may see a few sprinkles, but measurable rain chances have diminished. However, a strong cold front will bring falling temperatures and northwest winds to the northern two-thirds of Texas by the time we hit midnight Monday. Plan on having a coat with you since temperatures drop quickly from the 50s, 60s, and 70s down into the 40s. The northern half of Texas will drop into the 20s and 30s Monday morning, with wind chills in the 10s and 20s.


Monday and Tuesday will be cool across the majority of Texas. A strong upper-level storm system will arrive Tuesday afternoon in Far West Texas and move east across the state Tuesday night before exiting to our east Wednesday afternoon. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are possible across the eastern third to the eastern half of Texas. We may see one-half to two inches of rainfall – subject to shifts in forecast data over the weekend. Precipitation is also possible across the Texas Panhandle Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Depending on the track of our storm system, temperatures may be cold enough to support winter mischief (rain and snow). We’ll be watching data over the weekend. Mother Nature looks to keep us on our toes as we head into the second half of next week and the second week of January with colder and potentially wet weather. It’s bound to act like winter sometime in January or February, so you best plan on it. Beyond that vague expectation, it’s up to Mother Nature what kind of mischief we deal with before spring arrives.
