...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
MID AFTERNOON ON WEDNESDAY...SPREADING SOUTH ACROSS THE
REMAINDER OF WEST CENTRAL TEXAS BY WEDNESDAY EVENING.

2. MUCH COLDER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY...WITH
TEMPERATURES FALLING THROUGH THE DAY. BY LATE AFTERNOON...READINGS
WILL BE AT OR 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. 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 TODAY...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.
