While it may not be the warm weather Texans are used to, the weather is taking a turn for the better this weekend with the last of a hard freeze warning lasting through 10 a.m.

A hard freeze warning went into effect Thursday night through this morning after the final wintry mix of the week swept over Texas. A hard freeze warning means temperatures reached sub-freezing temperatures causing further impact to plants and pipes. The Austin area saw up to three inches of new snowfall yesterday, according to the National Weather Service.

Sunny skies can be expected with gradually warmer temperatures the whole weekend. Friday the high for the day is 39 degrees with a low of 21 degrees. Saturday will see a high of 52 degrees and a low of 40, and Sunday will see a high of 61 degrees with a low of 35.
