January is historically the coldest month on average in Austin. February can have some rather chilly extremes at the beginning of the month, but it starts to warm in late Feb, so the averages show it being slightly (but not by much) warmer than Jan.

So, we're not done for the winter just yet. The typical winter weather pattern is cold fronts followed by warming until the next front arrives. I'm not putting any coats or sweaters away until early March.

Yet another reason to steer clear of this place. After everything you deal with during the torrid relentless heat of summer, it still gets cold. Yes, COLD. This place is very cold and although not as cold as nothern locals, still bad enough to be considered winter. Basically, even after a horrendous summer, you still don't avoid the cold.

Where are you getting your weather forecasts from??? Generally, they are pretty much on par it seems. Keep in mind that unless you deal directly was the NWS, you are watching inexperienced weather casters (on austin local news) that are working in a small market. Nearly all of the local weathercasters in Austin start out in a small market and then eventually move to a larger one. So, I don't believe any of them are certified, but i could be mistaken.

And how abnormal are 40s in December in Austin? I know the average high is suppose to be 62, so in theory, we should be getting 80 degree days to make up for the past 10 days?

I moved here to be warm!

You are mistaken. On Channel Eight alone there are three degreed and certified meteorologists ... Burton Fitzsimmons, Adam Krueger, and Maureen McCann. I didn't look up stats for the weather staff for any of the other Austin news channels, but I'd be willing to bet that there's quite a few other weathercasters in Austin that hold degrees and certifications in meteorology as well.
