Tuesday’s cold weather will linger into Wednesday morning with wind chills of 15 to 23 degrees, but Victoria has seen colder days, said meteorologist Greg Wilk.
Victoria saw a record low of 17 degrees on Jan. 2, 1979, according to the National Weather Service in Corpus Christi. A freeze warning and wind chill advisory will be in effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday. After the advisory, the day is predicted to have sunny skies with highs in the upper 40s and northwest winds at 10 to 15 mph.
The Victoria Area Homeless Coalition opened a warming shelter Tuesday at the Central Church of Christ. The shelter will also be open Wednesday and Thursday. Volunteer staff members for the shelter are needed.
Also, Edna school district will have a two-hour delay Wednesday because of the cold.
