Austin / Travis County and South Central Texas Weather Update #4
Prepared by UT University/Incident Meteorologist Troy Kimmel
1155pm CT – Friday / 08 February 2019
… The Winter Weather Advisory, issued by the NWS/Austin-San Antonio for
Williamson.. Travis and Hays Counties until 7am Saturday, continues …
This includes the IH35 corridor counties including the greater Austin metro area.
The area of precipitation to our west and northwest has greatly decreased but some light freezing rain.. sleet.. snow pellets and rain is still falling in a 15 mile wide area from south of Fort Hood to just southeast of Burnet.
Other very light precipitation is in the vicinity of Round Mountain and Sandy in northern Blanco county.
Precipitation is moving northeastward about 20 miles per hour.
Given current precipitation trends, I am not expecting this precipitation to affect the Austin metro area or the H35 corridor south of Georgetown.
There is still a slim (20%) chance of additional precipitation into the morning hours Saturday morning.
This is my last statement, pending any changes, for this weather event.
