First Alert Weather Days continue as winter storm moves through Texas
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The First Alert Weather Days will continue through Wednesday as the latest winter storm moves into Texas with a wintry mix and more travel problems.
I expect the light wintry mix after midnight, increasing in real coverage and intensity tomorrow in the late morning and continuing into Thursday morning. The precipitation will be moving out of the area by early Thursday but travel problems will continue through mid-day Thursday, if not longer.
Temperatures will remain in the teens and low 20s tonight and warm slightly in the central and northwestern communities Wednesday afternoon. However, most of the South Plains will remain at or below freezing again Wednesday.
The heaviest accumulation of ice will be in the region along and east of the caprock, from Dickens east and southeast to Snyder, and into the central areas of the state, including the DFW region.
If you’re planning on traveling to the DFW or Hill country areas tomorrow and Thursday, check ahead since they could experience some heavy ice accumulations.
The South Plains will begin to warm by Thursday afternoon with highs in the 60s by the weekend.
