An Arctic air mass continues to filter into Central Texas Monday via gusty north winds. As temperatures fall tonight and a disturbance approaches from the Pacific, the stage could be set for another winter weather event.
Light, spotty rain showers are expected to begin in the Hill Country after sunset tonight, transitioning into a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow flurries by midnight.
As temperatures fall below freezing along the I-35 corridor by early Tuesday morning, sleet, freezing rain and slow flurries will likely mix in with light rain showers – potentially creating a hazardous situation for your Tuesday morning rush hour.
Overall, concerns are lower with this winter weather event compared to last Thursday’s event because overnight lows tonight should be 2-4 degrees warmer than last go-around, and precipitation chances are lower with lighter amounts expected.
Still, it’s important to keep a close eye on this developing winter storm as even small amounts of ice and sleet can create big problems.
