Winter weather sweeps into SA, Hill Country

Near freezing temperatures expected in San Antonio; Hill Country under winter weather advisory

SAN ANTONIO – South Texas' roller coaster weather has taken another dip this week as winter weather returned to the San Antonio area and the Hill Country early Monday morning.

KSAT Weather Authority meteorologist Katie Vossler says patchy drizzle will continue to be possible off and on through the rest of the day with temperatures staying in the 30s.  

Those areas in the Hill Country will hover right at or just below freezing, which means that any drizzle that develops will be freezing drizzle or light sleet.

Widespread travel problems are not expected, but elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses will be slick in the Hill Country, so be careful on daily commutes Monday and Tuesday.  

A winter weather advisory continues for the Hill Country through 6 p.m. Monday.

Winds will stay blustery through Monday, but will die down overnight.  

Temperatures in San Antonio will drop to near freezing Monday night and the Hill Country will drop below the freezing mark.

Not much of a warm-up is expected Tuesday. But some places, especially to the west, could see some sun by afternoon and temperatures will try to climb into the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.

The weather prompted the following school districts to adjust schedules:

  • Blanco ISD - Monday, early release at 1 p.m. Tuesday, late start at 10 a.m. Buses will run two hours later than usual.
  • Harper ISD -- Monday, classes canceled.
  • Rocksprings ISD -- Monday, late start at 10 a.m.
