Icy mix continues for Kerr County

We may have dodged the worst of the ice, but this period of wintry weather is far from over. The National Weather Service said the Winter Storm Warning will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday.

By noon, the temperature at Kerrville-Kerr County Airport was 30 degrees, but the forecasted freezing rain was generally absent. At about 5 a.m., less than a tenth of an inch of rain fell at the airport — just enough to make things icy.

The good news was that the lack of moisture kept the roads and freeway mostly passable. Kerrville Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Jonathan Lamb told The Lead Live that there were no crashes on city streets or on Intestate 10 overnight. That was a bit of good news after Tuesday morning’s rough start included a spat of crashes involving big rigs just west of the Kerr County line in Kimble County.


Lamb said most roads were in good shape after Kerrville road crews worked to keep bridges treated for the cold.

We asked our readers about conditions where they lived and many said roads were clear, but the real dangers were slick sidewalks and decks.

The National Weather Service’s forecast said there’s still a 70% chance of freezing rain into Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Radar images from National Weather Service stations in Del Rio and San Antonio showed Kerrville being missed by the heaviest icy rain.

The ice loads are lessening, but the danger of frozen sidewalks and driveways is real. The National Weather Service says Kerr County is still under a Winter Storm Warning until Thursday.
