***Winter Weather Advisory from 6AM Friday through 6PM Friday for Anderson and Henderson Counties.***
Overnight temperatures will be getting cold, with average temperatures around 32 degrees. Some areas will be below freezing tonight, and with that, we are expecting some areas to get some freezing rain and sleet. The better chances for sleet come in our northwestern counties and the better chances for freezing rain come in our northeastern counties those that are in the Ice Storm Warning. Deep East Texas should just see a very cold rain.
Friday will be cloudy with temperatures north of I-20 maybe making it to freezing or slightly above. Freezing Rain is likely to be the main wintry threat beginning overnight tonight and continuing through the afternoon. Some areas may see as much as 1/4" of freezing rain on Bridges, Overpasses and even more is possible on trees and power lines. Make sure you have your battery powered devices, CHARGED, in case we lose power during this wintry event. Deep East Texas will see mainly that cold rain, but a few areas may see some fz. rain or sleet before the precip leaves the area on Friday. The best chance to see the slick roads and the freezing rain will be north of interstate 20. Highs on Friday will top out, on average, in the middle 30s.
