A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Milam, Robertson, Lee, and Leon Counties from 12am to 12pm THURSDAY. A strong cold front has reached the Brazos Valley, and will continue to push south through the early evening hours. 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 10am Thursday. Little-to-no accumulation is expected -- however, caution is urged driving on bridges and overpasses.
Madison County Deputies are investigating after a man drowned Sunday evening at a private residence.
Officials say 50-year old Felipe Buendia Lopez of Dickinson drowned at 5:41 p.m. at a pond off FM 1372.
They say a 911 caller reported that a Lopez had been swimming with friends in the pond Sunday afternoon.
He was reportedly trying to cross the pond a final time when he went under and did not resurface.
A number of agencies were called to the scene.
Madison County officials searched the pond and around a pier but were unable to locate Lopez.
The College Station Fire Department and their dive team were then called into assist.
Sometime later, Lopez' body was found in the water.
