.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

A WINTRY MIX OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE
SOUTHEAST FROM A LINE FROM BRECKENRIDGE TO DECATUR TO GAINESVILLE

AND CENTRAL TEXAS THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AS ARCTIC AIR
DEEPENS ACROSS THE REGION.

FOR AREAS ALONG A LINE FROM BRECKENRIDGE TO DECATUR TO
GAINESVILLE...SNOW MAY MIX IN WITH THE SLEET BY LATE THIS EVENING.
THE COMBINATION OF ICE...SLEET...AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE

TIMES. THESE STRONG WINDS MAY EXACERBATE DANGEROUS DRIVING
CONDITIONS FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES...ESPECIALLY THOSE TRAVELING
