Up to 1/4" of ice possible as winter weather returns to East Texas

(KLTV) - Winter Weather Advisories will be in effect for the central and eastern portions of East Texas beginning at midnight tonight and continuing until 6:00am on Wednesday. The Counties are... Franklin, Titus, Morris, Cass, Camp, Wood, Upshur, Marion, Harrison, Gregg, Smith, Cherokee, Rusk, Panola, Shelby and Nacogdoches. In Deep East Texas, Angelina, San Augustine, Sabine, Jasper, Newton and Tyler Counties are in the Advisory as well. Winter Weather Advisories from midnight until 6PM Tuesday for...Delta, Hunt, Hopkins, Rains, Kaufman, Van Zandt, Henderson, and Anderson counties.

Freezing Rain Advisories for...Houston, Trinity and Polk counties from 3AM Tuesday until midnight on Tuesday. 

Tonight, moisture will continue to stream in from the south. Temperatures will fall to and below freezing across a large portion of Deep East Texas shortly after midnight. The rain showers will transition over to a mixture of freezing rain and sleet across the area. Locations in the current advisory have the potential to see up to a 0.25" of ice accumulations. This could cause issues as ice accumulations could weigh down on tree limbs and power lines causing power outages and major problems on area bridges and overpasses.

We may see a brief break in the precipitation Tuesday mid-morning through Tuesday early afternoon. A second wave of moisture looks to arrive Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening. This round of wintry precipitation could be in the form of freezing rain and sleet changing over the a bit of sleet/snow mix by the late evening hours. This wintry mess could continue into the overnight hours.

This system could bring disruptive weather to all of East Texas. Ice is a very dangerous type of precipitation that can cause bridges and overpasses to become impassable, along with creating power outages and bringing down large tree limbs.

Stay tuned to the StormTracker Weather Team throughout the day as we continue to update you with the latest information. New data will be streaming in during the day, so check back for more updates.
