Episode Narrative Chilly air originating in western Canada settled across all of Deep South Texas overnight on January 13th into the early morning of January 14th, as high pressure settled in. Clear skies, calm winds, and dry air allowed temperatures to plummet after sunset, reaching the lower and mid 30s in normally colder pockets by midnight, and falling below freezing between midnight and 3 AM on the 14th. Typically colder pockets had more than 8 hours of subfreezing temperatures; in general, based on the locus of observations in the region, 3 to 6 hours of sub-freezing temperatures occurred in larger, generally rural areas of Deep South Texas.
Event Narrative Minimum temperatures fell into the upper 20s in a number of locations, especially rural low lying pockets that are common throughout the eastern half of the county. At the Hollywood Hunting Camp cooperative site (Falfurrias, TX), the low temperature reached 26F. Temperatures at Brooks County airport hovered around 32F between 3 AM and 730 AM; a remote automated weather station near the Willacy/Brooks/Hidalgo County line bottomed out at 26F, with temperatures reaching 32 just before midnight on the 13th.
