A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE AREA LATE WEDNESDAY
WITH FALLING TEMPERATURES BEHIND IT DUE TO A VERY COLD AIRMASS.
TEMPERATURES MAY REACH AND THEN DROP BELOW FREEZING DURING THE
EARLY MORNING HOURS THURSDAY. PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED DURING

RESULTING IN A MIX OF RAIN AND FREEZING RAIN. AS THE COLD AIR GETS
DEEPER...THE RAIN AND FREEZING RAIN MAY TRANSITION INTO A MIX OF
SLEET. RIGHT NOW THE BEST TIME FOR FROZEN PRECIPITATION WILL BE
FROM 3 AM TO 9 AM THURSDAY MAINLY FROM A COLLEGE STATION TO A
LIVINGSTON LINE. AREAS FROM MADISONVILLE TO CROCKETT MAY HAVE A
HIGHER CHANCE OF A WINTTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION SINCE TEMPERATURES
MAY FALL BELOW FREEZING SOONER.

OVERALL RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL RANGE FROM 1 TO 2 TENTHS OF AN
INCH. ICE AND SLEET AMOUNTS WILL BE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE SINCE
THERE ARE TIMING ISSUES WITH HOW LONG THE AREA WILL BE BELOW
FREEZING. AT THIS TIME ICE AND SLEET AMOUNTS SHOULD REMAIN UNDER 1
TENTH OF AN INCH. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MAY BE NEEDED FOR
WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY. OVERALL THE MAIN IMPACTS WILL BE
