A rapidly evolving winter weather event is unfolding this morning temperatures over South Central Texas have dropped dramatically. Periods of freezing drizzle and light freezing rain are expected to arrive this morning, prompting the need for Winter Storm Warnings, Winter Weather Advisories, and an expanded area of communities impacted. Significant ice accumulation impacts are now considered likely over the Hill Country and Central Texas, including all of the Austin metropolitan area.
Due an earlier than anticipated onset of colder air and also the chances for rain and drizzle the potential for ice accumulation has increased significantly this morning. With these expected amounts, travel over the Hill Country and the Austin Metro area is discouraged later today through Wednesday.
Ice storms lead to very hazardous road conditions and could result in power outages for days. Have an emergency supply kit ready before the storm hits.
Freezing Rain is the Worst. Freezing rain is more dangerous than snow, as ice can form on pavement. Watch out for falling branches and powerlines. Use extreme caution if there is, or recently was, freezing rain.
Areas of rain showers are expected today. As temperatures fall to freezing or below, freezing rain & drizzle will become more common across the Hill Country into parts of the Austin area with ice beginning to accumulate in these areas. A Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory have been issued for these areas. Much colder temperatures are expected with highs ranging from the lower 30s north to lower 50s southwest. Breezy winds will create wind chills in the 20s, especially northern areas.
A cold air mass with well below normal temperatures and rounds of rain showers are expected Tuesday through Thursday. With temperatures hovering at or below freezing across northern areas, periods of freezing rain/drizzle will occur. A Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory have been issued through Noon Wednesday for our northern areas. Fair weather finally returns Friday and Saturday along with warmer closer to normal temperatures.
