Autumnal-like air is barreling across the CONUS this week — it reached West Texas on Wednesday, where it proceeded to take out a century-old record low in San Angelo, Texas.
Residents of San Angelo, a city on the Concho River, welcomed the summer-respite as the cold front dropped temperatures to a sweater-grabbing 13.9C (57F) — the coolest July 24 observation on record, narrowly busting the previous record low of 14.4C (58F) set in 1915 (solar minimum of cycle 14).
In addition, nearby Abilene also broke it’s previous all-time record for July 24, of 18.3C (65F) from 1989, with Wednesday morning’s low of 16.7C (62F).
In fact, according to the National Weather Service, most of the West Central Texas region is experiencing rare summer lows in the 50-degree range this week.
These cooler temps are set to last into the weekend, at least, likely toppling more records.
Stay tuned for updates.
