A cold front arriving late Monday evening will bring precipitation
and cold temperatures to Central Texas for Tuesday through
Thursday of next week. While rain will begin Monday night confidence
is increasing in chances for a wintry mix, primarily freezing 
rain and sleet, near and north of a Del Rio to northern San
Antonio to La Grange line Tuesday morning through Tuesday 
afternoon. A few degree difference in temperatures can change the 
precipitation type, impacts, and area where the wintry 
precipitation is expected so continue to check the forecast ahead 
of the event. 

In addition to the threat for wintry precipitation cold
temperatures and windchill are another hazard for Tuesday through
Thursday. Ahead of the front Tuesday morning temperatures will be
in the 40s, but will drop into the upper 20s to mid 30s by 
Tuesday afternoon. Gusty north winds behind the front will produce
wind chills in the high teens and low 20s Tuesday afternoon. 
Temperatures will continue to drop into the mid 20s overnight into
Wednesday morning, with windchill values in the teens across much
of South Central Texas. Temperatures remain cold with highs 
Wednesday and Thursday in the upper 30s and lower 40s, with 
overnight lows Thursday morning a few degrees around freezing. 

Begin preparing now for any changes in plans that a wintry mix
would cause on Tuesday and take steps to protect people, plants, 
pets, and your home from the expected cold weather for the middle 
of next week.
