...More wintry weather for west central Texas this week...
What you need to know... 1. After warmer conditions this afternoon...another strong cold front will move across west central Texas tonight. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will remain in the 30s in many locations...with overnight lows in the 20s.
2. Patchy areas of drizzle...freezing drizzle...and light freezing rain will be possible Tuesday evening through Wednesday night. Although any accumulations would be small...it only takes a glaze of ice on roadways to create dangerous driving conditions. This is especially true on bridges and overpasses.
3. A stronger upper level storm system will push into the area Thursday and Thursday night...bringing a better chance of more widespread...heaver... precipitation. At this time...it appears that temperatures will warm just enough to make this precipitation fall as a cold rain. This remains uncertain though. If temperatures end up a little colder than currently forecasted... than more significant wintry weather would be possible.
With the potential for hazardous driving conditions for new years eve and New Years Day...those with travel plans are encouraged to watch the forecast closely over the next several days. The potential for winter weather and its impacts will become better defined as we get closer to the event.
