It will be cold and damp this weekend, with sleet possible in the Hill Country and northern Edwards Plateau, this according to the National Weather Service Austin-San Antonio.
A line of showers and a few thunderstorms will accompany a strong cold front as it reaches northern counties around 6 a.m. Friday, and exits the southern counties around 10 a.m. Periods of light rain are expected the rest of the weekend. Light sleet may mix with rain over the Hill Country late Friday night into early Saturday, and a mix of light rain and sleet is more likely over the Hill Country and northern Edwards Plateau Saturday and Sunday nights. No significant sleet accumulation is expected. However, there may be slippery spots, especially on bridges. No sleet is expected in Metro Austin, San Antonio, and along the I-35 corridor, only cold rain.
Temperatures will quickly drop from the mid-60s into the mid-40s after the front goes through, and remain steady or drop into the lower 40s the rest of the day on Friday. North winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts to 30 mph, will make for blustery weather on Friday. Cold and damp conditions will continue through the weekend as
an upper low moves across Texas and moist Gulf air is lifted over the cold air near the ground.
High temperatures Saturday through Monday will be in the low- to mid-40s, with low temperatures in the mid- to upper-30s.
