Winter weather returns to west-central Texas as a cold front barrels through the state. It looks to bring freezing rain, sleet and even snow for much of the area.
The National Weather Service Office has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all counties in purple from 6:00 P.M. tonight until noon tomorrow. A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect at midnight until noon tomorrow for those shaded in the pink.
Light to moderate precipitation is expected which will make driving a challenge. It is possible to see 1/4-1/2" of snow and/or sleet accumulations by midday Tuesday. Additionally, a light glaze of ice is possible.
The National Weather Service defines a Winter Storm Warning as having significant amounts of ice. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
The cold front will also deliver very cold temperatures with gusty northeast winds. That will make the temperature feel like the single digits to teens for much of the day.
The front looks to be north of the big country by 3:00 PM this afternoon and move through the Big Country around 6:00 PM before swinging south to the Concho Valley.
