National Weather Service: Significant ice storm expected through Wednesday night

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A significant ice storm is expected to impact the region through Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service is calling for a heavier round of sleet and freezing rain Wednesday morning. The heaviest icing impacts will be across the Hill Country and into the I-35 corridor.

Rounds of freezing rain and some embedded light sleet will continue to remain possible across South-Central Texas, outside from the Winter Garden region, with the final round of any wintry precipitation expected from Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

That’s likely to cause travel and power disruptions across the Hill Country and I-35 corridor and southern Edwards Plateau.

There is a chance that some locations in the Advisory and Warning area may warm up to above freezing this afternoon into tonight. If that happens, NWS will make changes to the warning areas.

In the meantime, the weather service is advising against non-essential travel.
