We are seeing snow move through Central Texas this morning.  FUTURETRAC has most of the snow clearing out of the area by 10:30 this morning.

Temperatures will be above freezing today and that will help to melt any ice that is left from Monday’s winter weather.

A system moving into Texas from the west will provide increasing rain chances for the entire area.  There could be enough cold air in place for a changeover to winter weather in the form of light snow.  Surface temperatures will be the key factor in the forecast.  Temperatures should be too warm for any major accumulation, but the National Weather Service is being very cautious for dangerous travel conditions.  They have issued a Winter Weather Advisory for our northern counties from midnight to 12PM Wednesday.

Here is what FUTURETRAC is showing for Wednesday morning.

If temperatures stay in the mid to upper 30s we will be fine, but if these temperatures are just a few degrees cooler there could be some dangerous conditions on bridges and overpasses.  The good news is that temperatures will be in the low 50s Wednesday afternoon so we won’t have icy conditions for a long time…if we have any at all.

Winter Weather chances are in the forecast today.  Most of the area is under a Winter Weather Advisory.  That means winter precipitation will lead to slick roads, especially bridges and overpasses.

Please use caution driving this morning and even this afternoon.  Temperatures will not be warming above freezing for most of the area so any slick spots that develop will likely stay that way into Tuesday morning.

I will be working hard all morning with the very latest on our winter weather chances. Make sure you tune in to Early Texas Today at 4:30AM for all the latest delays and closings.

Winter Storm Watch in effect for Sunday night and Monday. We have a good chance for sleet and ice accumulation on the roads. That means dangerous travel conditions will be possible…especially during the morning hours. The key to this forecast will be the freezing line. The freezing line will determine if we get rain or ice. Right now this line could drop south near Bell County. Be ready for a messy commute on Monday.
