Keep the winter coats out to stay warm, San Antonio. The National Weather Service said the dry and cold temperatures are sticking around this week and into the weekend, as well as a light freeze hitting the Texas Hill Country on Monday night, November 14. 

Jason Runyen, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, told MySA that San Antonians can expect temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s from Monday through Friday, November 18. Runyen said some of the highest temperatures will be in the 50s to the near 60s.

The Hill Country, near Kerrville and Fredericksburg, will also experience a light freeze on Monday and Saturday, November 19, Runyen said. He added to be cautious when traveling as roads may be slick from the wet conditions in those areas.

Runyen said the cold temperatures are below normal for the week compared to previous years. The weather is slightly unusual but has occurred before in the past, he said. 

Last weekend, the National Weather Service issued a “widespread freeze” for the Alamo City and its surrounding cities, with highs on Sunday, November 13, in the 50s and lower 60s. Locals certainly felt the cold weather as many tweeted about it. Twitter user Eap wrote, “It’s actually getting cold in San Antonio and I’m living for it.”

“Okay San Antonio this the weather I been waiting for,” @r8venn tweeted.

“Ok San Antonio but why can’t you have this kind of weather everyday,” @Levahtated asked.
