Jan. 4-10 seven-day forecastScott Fisher

From Fox 7 Weather Chief Meteorologist Scott Fisher:

It’s taken a few days, but the Central Texas area is finally breaking out of the deep freeze.

Even with plenty of sunshine, it will take a little while to shake off this arctic air, but a warming trend is underway and temps will be much warmer by the weekend.

A bit more moisture will be around as we head into the second half of the weekend, and that could mean we see a few stray showers.

Hope your 2018 is starting off in fine fashion.
