A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Milam, Robertson, Lee, and Leon Counties from 12am to 12pm THURSDAY. A strong cold front will reach the Brazos Valley by mid-afternoon to early evening TODAY. Mild temperatures are expected to sharply fall as strong, brisk north winds arrive. A scattered rain chance could turn into a scattered, wintry mix between 6am and Noon Thursday. Little-to-no accumulation is expected -- however, caution is urged driving on bridges and overpasses.
Several thousand people lined up today for their chance to audition and hopefully make it on the TV show "American Idol."
The Alamodome is the site of the preliminary event for the popular Fox TV singing competition.
All participants had to register in advance. Organizers say there's no guarantee that everyone who registered will get the chance to audition in San Antonio -- time permitting.
San Antonio is one of seven US cities -- and the only stop in Texas -- for American Idol auditions for the show's sixth season.
Contestants need to be from 16 to 28 years old and eligible to work in the US. Other restrictions apply.
The winner of season one -- Kelly Clarkson of Burleson -- went on to win two Grammys.
