Winter Storm Warning for San Antonio region extended, several schools cancel classes for Tuesday

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A Winter Storm Warning has been extended to cover several more Texas counties until 6 A.M. Thursday.

A significant ice storm is still in the forecast for much of the region until late Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service says periods of light to moderate freezing rain will be possible across the Hill Country, I-35 Corridor, and coastal plains today as surface temperatures hover at and just below
32 degrees. This activity could bring icing impacts to both the morning and evening commutes.

Significant ice amounts are expected from Hill Country into the I-35 corridor. Ice accumulations
ranging from a quarter to one half of an inch now also appear possible over northern portions of
the San Antonio metro.

The Winter Storm Warning has been expanded into Fayette, Gonzales, Wilson, Bexar, Medina, and Val Verde Counties.

Atascosa, Karnes, DeWitt, and Lavaca Counties have been added to a Winter Weather Advisory.

The National Weather Service says they will issue an update on the current weather situation by 3 P.M. Tuesday.
