Following weeks of continuous rainfall, Uvaldeans may have had their umbrellas on standby, but many had to reach for winter wear Monday morning when the temperature dropped to 44 degrees from a high of 86 the previous day.
The Uvalde Research Weather Station, monitored by the Uvalde AgriLife Research Center, collected .89 inches of rain on Monday and .58 inches on Tuesday. Temperatures on Monday included a high of 77 with a low of 44; Tuesday, 51, 45; Wednesday, 56, 50; today, 58, 55; and tomorrow, 66, 59.
“We have a lot of moisture flowing into the area and a cold front that previously moved through,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Platt. “Those two things combined and produced the rain in your area.”
Platt said rainfall is expected to continue through the weekend.
