SAN ANGELO, Texas — A strong cold front pushed into West Texas overnight Sunday into Monday. This brought temperatures down to the 50s Monday morning. Afternoon temperatures remained below normal to start the week with highs in the 70s.
A mid-week warm up is expected ahead of the next powerful front. This cold front will bring in the coldest temperatures since May 12, 2019, when the morning low bottomed out at 46°F. Our forecast low temperature on Saturday morning is 43°.
That is only five degrees above the record low temperatures in San Angelo of 38° set back in 1926, and 10 degrees above the record low temperature of 33° in 1977, in Abilene. It is well below the normal low temperature of 56 degrees.
Temperatures both Friday and Saturday will remain well below normal with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
The roller coaster in temperatures will continue as we are set to rebound as we head into next week.
We will adjust the forecast as the timing the front can change given how far away we are from the event.
