Winter Weather Advisory Canceled; Warmer, Drier Weather Ahead (Update)
Update: Rain is expected to continue today through the Austin area but our chances of freezing precipitation have gone down considerably.
While sleet is still possible, forecasters don’t expect any of that frozen precipitation to accumulate.
Corey Van Pelt is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio. He says the outlook is warmer and drier as the week continues.
“It looks like by tomorrow afternoon this upper low moves through, so then we’ll get some drier weather behind it. It’ll still be cool though, Wednesday and Thursday mornings we’re expecting temperatures down in the 20's in the morning but then they warm back up into the 50's during the today. And it looks like by next weekend we’re back in the 60's, close to 70.”
There were some overnight reports of ice accumulation West of Austin and in the Hill Country – but, for now anyway, it looks like the worst of the wintry weather is over.
Earlier (8:21 a.m.): The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio has canceled the Winter Weather Advisory. The weather outlook includes rising temperatures and decreasing chances for mixed precipitation – meaning it's all expected to fall as rain, not sleet or snow.
Original Post (Nov. 24, 4:23 p.m.): The Austin area is under a Winter Weather Advisory until noon Monday. The National Weather Service has shortened the duration of the advisory, which had been in the forecast until 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Austin Independent School District officials say buses and classes will operate on a regular schedule on Monday, Nov. 25.
AISD says there will be no changes to the bus schedule on Monday, though people should expect some traffic delays during the morning commute tomorrow. Tardies will be excused.
