As a cold air mass continues to spread south into Central Texas, an upper-level disturbance will approach the area from the west tonight, increasing rain chances for the area.

Wednesday morning will feature patchy areas of rain, with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s across most of Central Texas.

By Wednesday afternoon, snow flurries will be mixed in with the rain, but mainly in the Hill Country. 

The National Weather Service in New Braunfels says, "Little to no impacts are expected. Given the warm soil temperatures from the previous period of well above normal temperatures and the fact that surface temperatures should likely remain above freezing, it is unlikely that there will be any snow accumulations. Any snow should melt upon contact with the ground."

The mix of rain and snow flurries is expected to continue Wednesday night into the early morning hours on Thursday. At this point, it looks to be just a cold rain on Wednesday for Austin.

"The San Antonio and Austin metro areas are expected to receive all rain. If temperatures begin trending colder, it is possible that the rain/snow mix line could make its way closer to the Interstate 35 corridor," continued the National Weather Service.

Rainfall amounts through Thursday morning could exceed a half in some spots. 

Thursday will be dry, but still cloudy and cool with highs in the low 50s.
