Winter Weather on it's Way....

The stage is being set for a possible ice storm across parts of East Texas late tomorrow through Wednesday morning. Winter storm watches are in effect for the northwestern part of East Texas through Wednesday morning. New model data has come in even colder this morning so look for some of these watches to be warnings for a mixture of rain and freezing rain and then for a brief period of time, precipitation should mix or change to snow along the I-20 corridor north. Right now it looks as though there is a chance of seeing 0.25” to 0.50” accumulations of ice from Palestine to Tyler to Gilmer and points north. As with all winter weather events in East Texas, conditions can change rapidly and we will be here monitoring the situation closely. If the cold air moves in a few hours earlier, we could be seeing wintry conditions much farther south than anticipated.
