We’ve received several reports of rain either mixing or changing over to light sleet across parts of Central Texas into the Brazos Valley. Temperatures have fallen to near freezing in Killeen and Georgetown but hopefully they can stay just warm enough to avoid any ice accumulation on bridges. At this time we have not heard of any ice accumulations nor do I really expect any this afternoon. Precipitation will continue to slowly move east/southeast while weakening this afternoon. By dinner time most of the region should be drying out or at least be rid of the measurable precipitation.

Round #2 will begin late tonight as our next storm system begins to influence South Texas. The High Resolution Rapid Refresh does show the chance for winter precipitation northwest of San Antonio tonight. We’re analyzing the latest weather model data and will have a complete forecast update on this scenario around 4 PM CST. I wouldn’t be surprised if we ended up having a Winter Weather Advisory issued for areas northwest of San Antonio but we’ll see how it works out.
