Parts of west central Texas, primarily south of the I-20 corridor, continue to be plagued by freezing precip at this time.  Travel through the area, including the I-20 corridor between Sweetwater and Pecos, and also the I-10 corridor between Ft. Stockton and Van Horn, continues to be hazardous and TXDot continues to ask that people stay off the roadways not not travel unless they absolutely must.  Winter precip is expected to continue for this region of the state on and off throughout the day with an uptick in a mix of winter precipitation expected during the overnight hours as an upper level disturbance approaches from the west. Much of this area is covered by Winter Storm Warnings until 3pm, but those may be extended if conditions continue to pose a threat.
