Multiple accidents have been reported in Travis County due to icy bridges. Freezing drizzle has increased over the last two hours across the eastern half of South-Central Texas. Surface temperatures in the upper 20s mean any drizzle will stick to elevated objects. The good news is this drizzle should be moving out of South-Central Texas by 7-8 PM, but until then we’re going to see bridges ice up in a hurry. Take them slow!
