Episode Narrative The core of a modified arctic air mass settled over all of South Texas on the morning of February 11th, providing clear skies and light winds. Cool dry air, with afternoon high temperatures only in the 50s on the 10th, allowed temperatures to tumble after sunset, eventually bottoming out in the 20s in most areas, except upper teens in preferred colder spots of the Brush Country, and just above freezing near the Cameron County coast, where easterly winds arrived prior to daybreak.

Following this freeze, temperatures would soon rise above average by mid month, and remain warm through the 28th.
Event Narrative Temperatures fell to 32F or slightly below by midnight on the 11th, then continued to steadily drop, reaching the upper teens in colder pockets, including the Hollywood Hunting Camp west of Falfurrias, by daybreak. At least eight hours of freezing temperatures were recorded, though up to 12 hours may have occurred in colder pockets. The low temperature at Brooks County Airport was 28 degrees just after sunrise; the low temperature at the Linn/San Manuel Remote Automated Weather Station was 24 degrees, with hard freeze conditions (less than 28 degrees) lasting for 10 hours.
