Sterling Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Special Statement
Statement as of 21:47 CST le 22 décembre 2014

...Winter returns to west central Texas with a little light snow possible across the western Big Country and western Concho Valley by sunrise...

What you need to know... 1. Rain will become more widespread overnight. It may become cold enough for the rain to mix with snow across the western Big Country and western Concho Valley.

2. The area most likely to see a little of this rain and snow mix would be west of a Sweetwater to Sterling City line...especially from the hills south of Sweetwater...across western Coke County west of Robert Lee...to near Sterling City.

3. With ground temperatures still very warm...any snow that does fall should not stick to area roadways. However...areas west of that Sterling City to Sweetwater line may briefly see a light dusting of snow on grassy areas. Any snow that does fall will quickly melt.

4. For Abilene and San Angelo...although a flake or two of snow can not be ruled out...the precipitation is expected to remain mainly just as a cold rain.

Summary...

A cold front will combine with an approaching upper level disturbance to produce widespread rain across portions of west central Texas...mainly north of a San Angelo to Brownwood line. Temperatures may fall quickly enough across the western Concho Valley and western Big Country to see a little snow mix in with the rain around sunrise...especially for the hills along and west of a Sweetwater to Sterling City line. With temperatures remaining above freezing...the snow will not stick to roadways and will likely quickly melt.

For the remainder of west central Texas...a cold rain will be likely. Temperatures will fall through the night as the cold front passes...and struggle to climb much on Tuesday. Highs in the 40s are expected.
