Message summary: ...cold air and wintry weather arriving tonight...
A strong cold front is currently moving through west texas and southeast new mexico. Northerly winds have increased and temperatures will fall quickly below freezing soon. Wind chill values near zero can be expected by early tuesday morning across much of the area. Dress appropriately and cover exposed skin when venturing outdoors. Moisture will overrun the cold air behind the front, resulting in a potential for wintry precipitation this evening into tuesday. For the permian basin, a brief period of light freezing rain or sleet possible this evening then quickly changing over to snow sometime before midnight. Any precip across this area looks to be very light and little to no accumulation is expected. The area of greatest concern is south of the pecos river, where precipitation will start as all rain, changing over to a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow overnight. Given the rapid decrease in temperatures, any moisture on roads, bridges, and overpasses will freeze, resulting in hazardous travel conditions, particularly along i-10 from the split to east of fort stockton. Icy spots could develop on area roadways making travel hazardous beginning tonight. Travel conditions are expected to worsen further to the east, so those with travel plans tonight and tuesday should monitor the latest forecasts and plan accordingly. More wintry precipitation is possible wednesday night, mainly along and south of i-10. In addition to the precipitation, many areas could see a prolonged period of temperatures below freezing. Make sure your pipes, pets, and plants are protected.
