The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory effective through noon Thursday, Feb. 24, for the Highland Lakes and surrounding area.

Conditions are right for freezing rain and a wintry mix the afternoon of Wednesday, Feb 23, through Thursday morning. This could lead to a light glaze of ice accumulation on elevated surfaces.

“Light icing will be possible on elevated surfaces mainly (Wednesday into Thursday) but could begin this afternoon in the northern part of the advisory area,” according to the NWS. 

The weather could cause problems on overpasses, bridges, and elevated surfaces and impact commutes.

If you are driving during these times, slow down and give yourself more time to get to your destination. Visit drivetexas.org for road conditions.
