…. Winter Weather Advisory Continues …

Austin / Travis County and South Central Texas Weather Update #4
Prepared by UT University/Incident Meteorologist Troy Kimmel
925am CT – Monday / 23 February 2015

… Winter Weather Advisory Until 6pm For Local Area ….
… Temperatures Continuing to Fall Slowly Across the Area ….

NWS /  Winter Weather Advisory (Valid until 6pm Mon/23Feb2015)
Counties Included.. Hays, Travis (Metro Austin), Williamson counties and
Hill Country counties to west northwest
Ice accumulations up to 1/10th inch.

NWS / Winter Weather Advisory (Valid until 6am CT Tues/24Feb2015)
Counties Included.. Milam (Rockdale/Cameron)
Some light ice accumulations
Sleet accumulations up to 1/4 inch

At 900am… temperatures continue to fall slowly across the area with both Austin City
(Camp Mabry) and Austin Bergstrom Intl Airport now at 32F. Austin Great Hills (Arboretum
area) has fallen to 29.4F.. Jollyville (LCRA Hydromet) is 30F.. Austin Executive Airport (along
the toll road just southeast of  Pflugerville) is 30F.. Georgetown is 30F.. Lago Vista is 30F…

This concerns me given the fact that (1) temperatures are not going to recover much across
the area today and (2) more precipitation is approaching the area from the southwest.

We need to continue to monitor this weather event carefully… everyone is responsible for
keeping up with the latest information in case the temperatures end up colder than expected
and the situation turns worse than expected.. stay weather aware. Listen to local media
reports for the latest information.
