A winter storm is still affecting the area, as ice continues to build up on roads. The ice is a result of light rainfall that spread over the area overnight.

The ice has caused roadways to become hazardous and treacherous, especially on elevated bridges and overpasses. The ice will continue to develop through the rest of the week, but it is unlikely to be as severe as it was yesterday.

Freezing rain and accumulating ice are forecast for much of the Hill Country and a large portion of Central Texas through Thursday morning. Some areas may see a half-inch or more ice accumulation.

Snowfall is also expected across the area. Snowfall amounts between a few inches and an inch are expected to fall across the Hill Country, while a half-inch of snow is forecast for the remainder of the area.

The icy conditions will continue through the day on Wednesday, but the temperatures will rise above freezing Wednesday evening into Thursday morning. Afternoon temperatures will reach the mid-30s in Austin, the low and mid-20s in Dallas, and the upper 30s to 40 degrees in the coastal plains and southern West Texas.

Despite the chilly weather, the Houston area is expected to have clear skies through Friday. The weekend will be brighter and drier, with sunny skies.

Another cold front will slide into the area Monday, bringing rain to parts of Southeast Texas, but it should dissipate by the end of the week. The front is expected to give way to dry air on Thursday, Cady said.

Winds will shift to the north and northwest Tuesday, bringing gusty winds to the area. Winds are expected to remain between 5-15 mph.

Rain is likely to spread across the region during the day, but it will be light and inconvenient. The rain will bring street flooding concerns to some places, but the rain should be less intense than last week's floods.

The area is still under a winter weather advisory, so drivers should be careful on the roads as the ice and rain are predicted to persist through Wednesday afternoon. The road conditions will be hazardous and treacherous throughout the area, but they won't be as bad as they were yesterday.
