Two words of advice for today: Bundle up.
Of course, if you’ve waked up and are reading the paper, you probably already know how cold it is outside. Brown County may have just weathered its coldest night of the season, so far. Predictions from the National Weather Service out of San Angelo Wednesday afternoon were that Thursday morning temperatures would hover in the 30-degree range.
“Yep, it could get cold enough for the dog water to freeze,” said NWS Meteorologist Willie Gilmore.
Gilmore’s predictions for the day today are that it won’t get much above than 45 degrees, if that warm. And, he said, gusty winds out of the north and a fairly heavy cloud cover will make it seem even colder.
The low for today, Gilmore said, will be about 33 or 34 degrees, and once darkness falls this evening, temperatures will drop back into that range.
Friday is also going to be “fairly cool,” in the 44-45 degree range, but maybe not as windy and with clear skies.
“It’s definitely jacket weather again on Friday,” Gilmore said.
And for Early fans traveling to Sweetwater, Gilmore recommends jackets, hats, gloves and blankets. By the 7:30 p.m. Friday kick-off, temperatures will be in the very low 40s, and falling.
“By the end of the game, it could be freezing, or close to freezing,” he said.
The cooler temperatures will likely hold throughout the holiday weekend, Gilmore said, continuing with daytime highs in the mid 40s and night-time lows in the 30s.
“It’s late November, and the cooler temperatures are normal,” he said. “People just need to bundle up, stay warm.”
