Icy conditions, severe crashes slam Central Texas


CENTRAL TEXAS (KXAN) — With a Winter Storm Warning in effect through early Thursday, icy conditions have cropped up throughout Central Texas, causing slick roadways and crashes along major thoroughfares, highways and local roads.

Here’s a look at some of the photos captured of the storm, from both KXAN crews and viewers.

KXAN’s First Warning Weather team forecasts temperatures will hover near to below freezing all day Tuesday, allowing anything that falls to stick.

Scattered to widespread freezing drizzle and freezing rain can be expected through the day Tuesday afternoon and evening, as well as into Wednesday. A few rain showers and thunderstorms may mix in midday Wednesday into Thursday, but the primary concern will still be the threat of icing.

By Thursday afternoon, KXAN’s meteorologists expect all precipitation to subside.
