*Update to Friday Forecast*
Most of us have felt the power of the cold front pushing through this afternoon...in Del Rio, the temperature dropped from 75*F to 57*F in one hour! And it continues to drop.
Temperatures are already near the freezing mark further north in San Angelo, as well as out west in higher elevation like Fort Stockton and the Alpine - Fort Davis - Marfa region.
Winter-type weather could occur overnight in these areas...primarily freezing rain (better known as ice storm) and ice accumulation on roadways and sidewalks. Areas of greatest concern will be elevations of about 3000 feet as well as all cities north of a line from Odessa to San Angelo, despite elevation.
Additionally, frigid wind chill temperatures will likely be in the 20's widespread through the evening and early morning, with some areas reaching down into the teens, with wind chill.
Be safe and bundle up!
