Episode Narrative Surface high pressure with a touch of arctic air spread across all of Texas during the first full week of December, reaching the Rio Grande Valley on the 7th and continuing into the morning of the 8th, bringing several hours of temperatures at or below freezing.
Event Narrative The automated surface observing system at Brooks County Airport, 3.5 miles southeast of Falfurrias, reported several hours of temperatures at 32F, interrupted by short periods just above freezing. Interpolation between the more sheltered observation at the Lower Rio Grande NWR east of San Manuel (Hidalgo County) suggests that temperatures in rural ranchlands fell as low as 30F or more through the night.
