New Year, new weather: Temperatures dropping to 30 degrees in first freeze of the season

(Christa McWhirter/Austonia)

It's finally going to feel like winter in Austin this weekend as a freeze sweeps over Central Texas in the first days of the new year.

Temperatures will drop Saturday night to a low of 30 degrees, according to National Weather Service. The cold weather will stick as Sunday sees a high of 48 and a low of 25. Winds could get up to 25 mph all weekend.

And with the cold weather, expect sunny skies into the start of the week.

Temperatures will remain cool under 75 degrees throughout the week with lows in the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday night before just barely warming up heading into the following weekend.

This will be the first freeze of the season in Austin as December's been one of the warmest in history for Central Texas with multiple days of record-breaking heat.
