COLD AIR IS LOCKED IN PLACE FOR THE LONG HAUL, MAYBE SOME ICE BY SATURDAY NIGHT......
Areas from west Texas to the Metroplex are dealing with a huge mess of sleet and freezing rain that is making many roads impassable. This storm is poised to cause trouble though the Mid-West and even parts of the Northeast too.
For the Brazos Valley, this weather system will not be a big deal. Up in DFW and west Texas, freezing rain and sleet are causing huge problems. For us, the temperature may hover around freezing (32°) or below for a time Friday morning, but the ground temperatures will stay just above freezing, which means that ice will not form for most of us.
That said, still use extra CAUTION on bridges and over passes.
There may be a spot or two that experience a brief period of freezing rain or sleet, but the roads should be god to go. Any precipitation will move out by Friday afternoon and the weather should be dry through Friday afternoon and evening as the temperatures drop into the upper 20s. Saturday looks dry and cold at this time, but some precipitation will come back late Saturday night and into Sunday morning. Freezing drizzle is possible earyl Sunday, but most of the precipitation should stay as liquid. Therefore, the BCS marathon should be wet, rather than frozen. Overall, this will not be a big deal, just make sure to drive with exrta caution in mind. Changes can occur and I will keep you up to date.
