An arctic cold front will bring the coldest temperatures and wind chills of the season early next week, according to the National Weather Service in Brownsville/Rio Grande Valley.

There is growing confidence in the forecast that most of Deep South Texas will experience a widespread freeze from Monday night into Tuesday morning. 

The NWS is particularly monitoring the situation for the possibility of a hard freeze in certain areas of the region. A hard freeze refers to a prolonged period of extremely cold weather that can cause significant damage to vegetation, pipes, and other infrastructure.

The forecasted wind chills on Tuesday morning are expected to range from the teens to the low 20s, which is quite severe for the area. These frigid conditions pose risks to everyone, but certain groups are especially vulnerable to the dangers of extreme cold. People of advanced age and those with certain medical conditions are less able to regulate their body temperature, making them more susceptible to the effects of such cold weather.

In light of this forecast, residents in the affected areas should prepare for the cold. This includes ensuring adequate home heating, protecting water pipes from freezing and taking care of plants and pets. It's also important for individuals to dress warmly and in layers, and to check on neighbors, especially those who are elderly, ill, or otherwise vulnerable.
