Tonight will bring widespread freezing temperatures, with considerably worse wind chills.

As you plan your Friday evening activities, the temperature is 30-35 degrees lower than it was 24 hours earlier. Temperatures will be in the 30s this evening as the clouds gradually clear, with wind chills in the 20s expected in the morning.

Because of north winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour, a Wind Advisory is in effect for the majority of the area until midnight tonight.


By late afternoon, a few isolated showers will have passed, and the skies will clear swiftly after that. A broad freeze is expected to occur Saturday morning, with a second freeze possible in most regions on Sunday morning as well.

A harsh freeze with low temperatures in the 20s may be experienced in colder rural locations outside of Austin. Austin’s average last freeze of the winter would occur nearly a month after this late-season freeze, making it Camp Mabry’s latest freeze in more than three decades.

The most recent final freeze recorded at Camp Mabry occurred on April 9, 1914.

Mid-March freezes are not unusual in colder metro-area valleys such as Austin-Bergstrom Airport and the Hill Country, as well as throughout the rest of the state.

With sunshine, temperatures will reach the upper 50s on Saturday afternoon. The nice rising trend continues Sunday afternoon with temperatures in the 60s, and seasonably warm weather is expected for the rest of the week for SXSW attendees.
