Episode Narrative The coolest, full-sunshine day of the young winter on December 26th, where highs only reached the mid and upper 50s with continued very low humidity, set the stage for one more chilly night in Deep South Texas prior to rapid return of more seasonable weather later on the 27th. Across nearly all sheltered areas from the Rio Grande Plains through the King Ranch, temperatures fell to freezing shortly after midnight and continued until the predawn hours.

This would be the sixth minor freeze of the autumn/winter 2010 for locations from Zapata County to the King Ranch.
Event Narrative Proxy observations from the Remote Automated Weather Station at the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge near San Manuel (minimum: 27 degrees, freezing for 7 hours) and the cooperative observer at Armstrong (Kenedy County, 31 degrees) argue for several hours of freezing temperatures across much of Brooks County during the pre dawn hours of December 27th. The cooperative location at Falfurrias only reached 33 degrees and Brooks County airport did likewise, but for more than six hours.
