STATEWIDE CURRENT SITUATION: Numerous school and government offices closed in
preparation for the winter weather. As the upper disturbance approaches, precipitation will
develop over north Texas. Thereafter, the rain will change to some wintry precipitation as cold
air behind a new cold front moves in. The precipitation will likely shift southward behind the front
into south central Texas and will extend eastward into northern Louisiana through Tuesday.
Current weather models show that the precipitation will end over southeast and deep south
Texas and southern Louisiana Tuesday night.

NWS Austin/San Antonio: Temperatures will continue to drop into the upper 20s to around 30
for most areas, with mid 20s across the Hill Country. Areas of light precipitation will move
southwest to northeast through the morning hours, freezing on many surfaces. Some patches of
sleet will also mix in with a possible transition over to patchy light snow before precipitation ends.
Favored areas for freezing rain over the next few hours will be from Hondo to San Antonio to
Schulenburg and north to a Kerrville to Austin to Giddings line. Precipitation will gradually end
from northwest to southeast between noon and 3 PM, possibly linger a little longer across far
southeast counties (Karnes, DeWitt, Lavaca) later into the afternoon. Temperatures will not rise
above freezing today for those locations that are already freezing. Far southern areas and along
the Rio Grande that are currently in the mid 30s will drop to freezing through the morning with the
potential for patchy freezing rain. Wind chill values in the teens to low 20s will continue through
today for most areas, with single digit values over the Hill Country.

NWS Corpus Christi: Strong north winds will occur over the coastal counties into the Victoria
Crossroads behind the arctic cold front. North winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts between 40 to
50 mph are expected from early Tuesday morning through the afternoon.

NWS Houston/Galveston: Light to moderate rain will continue to gradually transition to this
wintry mix, with this mix spreading into the Houston metro after sunrise and reaching the coast
after noon. Intermittent periods of winter weather will continue throughout the day, ending during
the late afternoon through evening hours from north to south. Ice accumulations north of
Interstate 10 may range from 0.05-0.1″ and south of Interstate 10 may be as high as 0.05″.
Snow accumulations may be up to 0.5″ north of Interstate 10, with accumulations over one inch
possible north of a Brenham to Livingston line. North winds will be breezy (10-20 MPH with
stronger gusts around 30 MPH inland and 30 to 40 MPH coast). This will result in wind chills
falling into the teens area wide by the end of the afternoon. Additionally, should ice begin to
accumulate, there may be issues with power lines at these wind speeds. Light to moderate rain
