It was a good day to wear shorts in Kerrville on New Year's Day

The high of 83 degrees is a likely record for New Year's Day

When the dust settles on the Christmas and New Year's season, there will be records to be discussed — for how many of us wore shorts on both days.

Saturday's New Year's Day high temperature of 83 degrees is likely to be a record for Kerrville — as a warm front continued across the Hill Country.

The previous high of 81 degrees was in 2006.

In most cities in and around San Antonio, highs were in the high 70s to low 80s. In Del Rio, the high was 89.

Those who want a more seasonal feel will not be disappointed Sunday when the high shouldn't climb past 50. Kerr County can expect an overnight low of 25 degrees and gusty winds into Sunday morning.

The cool and mild temperatures will continue throughout the week. When it comes to rain — well, it's going to be dry. There's no rain in the forecast for the next seven days.

Temperatures in the 70s have defined the warmth of the Christmas-New Year's week. Christmas Day set a record of 80. However, New Year's has been a bit warmer since 1980, with 12 days of 70 or above.
