Cold and even colder is wintry Kerr County forecast for Thursday

Hard freezes and freezing rain are part of Thursday's charming forecast

If you’re reading this article on Tuesday afternoon, you’re probably enjoying a beautiful day — enjoy it while it lasts.

The National Weather Services seems to be revising its forecast — downward — for a strong cold front arriving Wednesday. There’s now a winter storm watch included in the forecast, including for all of us here in Kerr County.

The weather service said that a wintry mix could slam the Hill Country, including Kerr County, late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning, and you better bundle up. The high Thursday is expected to be 30 degrees.


The weather service said they expect a hard freeze to happen to start at 3 a.m. and there’s growing confidence that the storm could produce an extended freeze into Friday.

For those of you who may not fully understand the plight of icy roads here’s how the National Weather Service explains it: “Plan on slippery road conditions. Travel could be very difficult on untreated roads, especially elevated bridges, overpasses, and roadways. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute. In addition, risk for hypothermia exists for those spending extended time outdoors and not dressed in layers and gloves.”

Exactly how much ice and sleet we will get is unclear. However, the weather service says parts of the Hill Country could receive up to a half-inch of ice.

“Confidence continues to increase that a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet will occur by Thursday morning and produce icing amounts that could cause travel impacts through the Hill Country and into the Austin metro area,” the National Weather Service said.

The cool temperatures will stick around into next week with a high on Monday expected to reach in the low 50s.
