Cold, Wet Weather in the Forecast
Parts of the Northern and Western Hill Country are under a winter weather advisory beginning at noon today. This includes the cities of Kerrville and Fredericksburg.
The National Weather Service says an Arctic blast of cold air is bringing near-freezing temperatures and light rain to the area. That could turn into light freezing rain tonight and into tomorrow morning. The weather service doesn’t expect the ice to accumulate – but still warns roads could be slick – especially bridges and overpasses.
The winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of the Hill Country through noon on Saturday.
Right now, the Austin area is not under a winter weather advisory. But some overnight rain has closed some low water crossings. The affected areas include Spicewood Springs road near Capital of Texas Highway and crossings near MoPac and Parmer Lane.
