Most of the moisture today has stuck to the southern Interstate 35 Corridor and east, but it has been pretty light. Another cool day and chance of rain brings in the second day of the new year. Most of the expected rainfall will fall during the late afternoon and overnight hours tomorrow, but little accumulation is expected. Higher elevations, including parts of Hill Country, could see some wintry mix overnight Saturday/Sunday.
Meanwhile, West Texas, due to it's higher elevation, will see some areas of frozen precipitation overnight tonight. Overall pretty light, but due to a warm layer aloft and freezing surface temperatures, most precipitation will be icy- rather than snowy- leading to dangerous driving conditions.
Sunday looks to be, for the most part, precipitation free and start to bring clearing skies to the region. After all the reports are in and quality-checked, I'll be posting 2015 Weather Extremes for the State of Texas. Should be in the next week or so, so stay tuned!
