Freezing temperatures are expected in the San Antonio area.

Residents of San Antonio and the Hill Country need to think about three things as a cold front brings freezing tempertatures to the area, according to the National Weather Service Office in New Braunfels.

And those three things are pipes, pets, and plants. Wrap exterior pipes to prevent them from freezing and bring pets and plants inside.

Freezing temperatures will move into the Hill Country Monday night and then spread along the Interstate-35 and Highway 90 corridors by Tuesday morning.

Overnight, the wind chill will drop temperatures into the teens across the Hill Country and 20s elsewhere. Forecasters added residual moisture might lead to flurries.

National Weather Service forecaster Yvette Benavides said San Antonio is on the edge of the freeze area.

"Freezing temperatures will be more borderline for San Antonio, so there will be some areas that see freezing and some areas not," she said.

Benavides, however, said it will be even colder overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning for San Antonio.

She said the freezing weather is two weeks ahead of San Antonio's first traditional average freeze day of Nov. 30.

Temperatures will gradually rise into the mid to upper 60s by the end of the week, the weather service said.
