It’s been a bitterly cold Thursday across South Central Texas after a cold front roared through the area Wednesday night. Temperatures didn’t make it out of the 30s this afternoon!

In addition, areas of light precipitation -- rain, freezing rain, sleet, and even a little snow -- peppered the radar for most of the day. A lot of the precipitation didn’t reach the ground, as it remained too dry at the surface.

Nonetheless, today’s light wintry mix will gradually taper off overnight. Any untreated elevated roadways, like flyovers, could develop a few slick spots. As a result, a Winter Weather Advisory (below) will remain in effect through 6 a.m. Friday.
