SAN ANTONIO -

Another round of winter weather and possible snow is predicted to hit the San Antonio area this week.

KSAT Weather Authority meteorologist Mike Osterhage says Wednesday will be clear, chilly and mostly sunny with a high of 69, but temperatures are expected to drop significantly as an arctic cold front moves through Texas.

According to a National Weather Service alert, the arctic cold front will bring winter precipitation and some snow accumulation across portions of south central Texas late Thursday evening into Friday morning.

The NWS predicts light rain will develop during the day Thursday with a mix of sleet and snow predicted to begin in the evening.

The best time for accumulating winter precipitation will be between 6 p.m. Thursday and 6 a.m. Friday. The winter weather is expected to impact the Friday morning commutes in the Austin and San Antonio areas.

All precipitation will end Friday around noon into the early afternoon. The high for Thursday and Friday will be around 40 with lows around 30 both days.
