Storms to bring heavy rain, high winds to Austin starting Tuesday

Freezing rain expected to make Monday morning difficult

Temperatures are expected to reach the mid to high 70s through Wednesday.

More than 190 institutions have announced delays or closures due to slick roads. Use extreme caution when traveling this morning.

Tuesday afternoon temperatures should climb above freezing where freezing rain fell earlier in the day so road conditions should improve.

Emergency responders were called to at least one instance of a auto stuck in high water on Elgin Street just south of McGalliard Road mid-morning Monday, even after barricades had been set up earlier to keep cars out of the flooded section of roadway.

On Wednesday, there's a slight chance of snow during the day, followed by a 30 percent chance of wintry precipitation on Wednesday night.

Wednesday - Partly sunny, with a high near 31.

Periods of rain chang to periods of snow or freezing rain in the evening and end after midnight then skies are cloudy with a 60 per cent chance of freezing drizzle. We need to watch this closely, because arctic air can sometimes be colder and move in faster than expected. The first part of this week is obviously chilly, but daytime temps will start rebounding into the 40s (and eventually the 50s) later this week and early next week. Here's a look at the rain forecast for the next week. Highs are near 40 degrees. Let's get through the next few days - so we can all bask in the milder spring-like weather next week! Please stay aware of the weather this week, especially if you're planning to hit the roads! Be sure to check back for regular forecast updates, as this active weather pattern hangs around.
