Some solid rainfall totals should help to ease drought conditions.

TONIGHT: Below freezing temperatures make a comeback tonight as northerly winds still gust along and bring us even colder wind chill values. While most of the ice began to melt away throughout the day, any leftover puddles and wet spots on the ground will turn into slick spots and black ice. Be sure to take it slow on the roads overnight and into tomorrow morning as this will be a big risk until temperatures drastically warm up.

Below freezing again tonight will lead to patchy ice by morning.

TOMORROW: Most of the cloud cover left over from the winter storm will have pushed out by the morning leaving ample sunshine to help warm up conditions across Central Texas. Some early morning fog is possible due to the excess moisture in the atmosphere, but it won't last long. Northerly winds will stop temperatures from getting too warm, but warm enough to melt off any leftover ice. 

HIGH: 48°

Sunshine coming back alongside the warmer temperatures.

IN COMING DAYS: We will begin to notice a large pattern shift as winds start to come up from the south in full force heading into the weekend. This will result in much warmer and much more seasonable conditions for the weekend and early parts of next week. Once we get passed Saturday morning, it looks like the below freezing temperatures will remain out of the extended forecast for the time being. Rain will make a comeback by Tuesday and Wednesday as a cold front is expected to move in, but it won't be nearly as powerful as the last few systems. As a matter of fact, it'll keep temperatures pretty mild and well above the freezing point.
