...MORE WINTRY CONDITIONS ON THE WAY FOR WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY...

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

1. FREEZING RAIN...SLEET...AND SNOW ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS
THE INTERSTATE 20 CORRIDOR FROM SWEETWATER TO ABILENE AS EARLY AS
NOON ON WEDNESDAY...AND SPREAD SOUTH ACROSS THE REMAINDER OF WEST
CENTRAL TEXAS BY WEDNESDAY EVENING.

2. MUCH COLDER CONDITIONS EXPECTED AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY...WITH TEMPERATURES
FALLING THROUGH THE DAY. BY LATE AFTERNOON...READINGS WILL BE AT
OE BELOW FREEZING ALONG AND NORTH OF A SAN ANGELO TO BRADY LINE.
WIND CHILL READINGS WILL BE IN THE TEENS.

3. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE ARRIVAL OF THE MUCH COLDER
CONDITIONS ONCE AGAIN. THERE IS LESS CONFIDENCE IN THE TYPE AND
AMOUNTS OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION...AND POTENTIAL IMPACTS.
HOWEVER...IT DOES APPEAR POSSIBLE THAT A LARGE PORTION OF WEST
CENTRAL TEXAS MAY SEE ENOUGH FREEZING RAIN...SLEET..OR SNOW TO
CREATE ANOTHER ROUND OF ICY ROAD CONDITIONS.

SUMMARY.

AFTER A MUCH WARMER DAY ON TUESDAY...ANOTHER VERY STRONG COLD
FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA ON WEDNESDAY. THIS FRONT WILL
COMBINE WITH A WEAK UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM TO PRODUCE ANOTHER
ROUND OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION ACROSS MUCH OF WEST CENTRAL TEXAS.
AT THIS MOMENT...ITS A LITTLE EARLY TO TELL WHETHER THE
PRECIPITATION WILL END UP AS FREEZING RAIN...SLEET...SNOW...OR
SOME COMBINATION...AND THEREFORE EXACTLY WHAT THE POTENTIAL
IMPACTS WILL BE. RESIDENTS OF WEST CENTRAL TEXAS...AND ANYONE
WITH TRAVEL PLANS ACROSS THE AREA WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT
AND THURSDAY MORNING...SHOULD STAY ALERT FOR FUTURE UPDATES.
