Forecast: Widespread rain Thursday morning; additional icing possible for some

Here are the latest updates from the KVUE Storm Team.

AUSTIN, Texas — The final round of precipitation of our multi-day winter weather event continues to move through during the first half of Thursday. This last round will bring continued icing potential for some areas, especially across the Hill Country, but is not expected to be a repeat of Tuesday night. 

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move through the area on Thursday morning, so don't be caught off guard if you hear a few rumbles of thunder.

Warmer air works northwestward across Central Texas. This will bring temperatures from Austin and points southeast likely above freezing on Thursday morning. Unlike the past couple of days, our temperatures will be on the rise throughout the day and we could see highs in the lower 40s along and east of I-35. 

However, prior to then, light mist and drizzle continue to provide an additional light glaze on trees that are already weighed down. The onset of the last round of heavier precipitation could also bring more light icing prior to becoming plain rain. 

Across western Williamson and western Travis counties, as well as the Hill Country, the icing potential will be a bit higher through early morning with colder air in place. Some spots could see an additional glaze up to two-tenths of an inch of icing, but this will not be the case everywhere. 

All precipitation should move out to the east by 8 p.m. Thursday, and a warming trend will take place each afternoon through the beginning of next week. 

40% chance of rain with clearing conditions by the evening. North-northwest wind at 10-15 mph with gusts around 20 mph.
HIGH: 43°F 

Gradual clearing. Hill Country light freeze. North-northwest wind at 10 to 15 mph with gusts around 20 mph.
LOW: 35°F

Sunny and warmer. North wind at 5 to 10 mph.
HIGH: 55°F
