SAN ANTONIO – The wintry weather that hit Central and South Texas made for dangerous, icy conditions this weekend — but it has also resulted in what looks like a winter wonderland.
The storm even resulted in snow overnight, which had locals trekking outdoors for a chance to play and take photos in the rare weather occurrence.
KSAT viewers sent in great images of icy conditions and snow to our KSAT Connect page throughout the weekend and overnight into Monday morning as temperatures plunged.
Images included people outside the River Walk and the Alamo, which are rarely seen blanketed in snow.

Transportation and local government officials are asking people to avoid travel as much as possible due to the icy conditions.
Widespread winter weather moved in late Sunday and will continue through very early Monday morning. A mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow swept across the KSAT viewing area while temperatures fell into the low 20s and teens.
