Arctic front brings cold, rain Super Bowl Sunday

2-2 7 day

An Arctic front brought a drastic cool-down to Central Texas just in time for Super Bowl Sunday.

The mid-70s the area saw Saturday afternoon are a distant memory as Arctic air filters in to the region from the north.

High temperatures across the area occurred just after midnight Sunday behind the front. With strong, gusty north winds between 15-25 mph, temperatures fell into the upper 30s and low 40s by Sunday afternoon.

Wintry weather stayed to our north and west. In Central Texas, the spotty light precipitation fell as a cold rain.

Rain chances ended Sunday night but cold northerly breezes will continue tonight as temperatures fall into the 20s.

Temperatures will rebound just slightly Monday under mostly cloudy skies.

Another storm system and cold front are poised to bring rain showers Tuesday followed by much colder air the rest of the work week, and another threat of freezing rain and ice Friday morning.
