Winter Storm Warnings expanded to include more of the Brazos Valley through Thursday morning

Updated: 58 minutes ago

A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for Milam, Robertson, Leon, and Lee counties until 6am Thursday and for Burleson, Brazos, Madison, and Washington counties until 12pm Wednesday. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in place for Austin, Waller, Grimes, Walker, and Houston counties until 12pm Wednesday | Steady temperatures in the 30s and scattered rain are expected to continue for the Brazos Valley Tuesday and Wednesday. For those that have found the thermometer a few degrees above 32°, it is cold...it is wet...but generally there have been no problems. For those right at or just below, 32°, that is where we have concerns going into Tuesday -- particularly the afternoon, evening, and overnight into Wednesday morning. The Highway 79 corridor and north have been listed in the MODERATE impacts category by the National Weather Service, meaning travel impacts are expected and a few instances of tree limbs or power lines may sag or come down due to the weight of the ice. For the Central Brazos Valley, including Bryan-College Station -- temperatures today and Wednesday are expected just above freezing by a degree or two. The exception will be the evening and overnight hours into Wednesday morning. This is when the chance for freezing rain here in town looks to be the highest. Generally, travel impacts are expected to be limited, but slick spots mainly on bridges and overpasses cannot be ruled out. Heaviest rain / largest icing potential is expected mid-afternoon to evening tonight.
