What's it doing at your house? We had to drive north to Duval/183 and it started sleeting on us. By the time we hot back to the house there were some good sized snowflakes mixed in. The radar shows just rain though. Wondering if we will have an ice event for tomorrow's commute.

It is snowing in Westlake. But it is just a tad to wet to stick. My fountain has lots of ice, and there is some more ice around the house.

I think it is supposed to warm up overnight and will just be a wet day tomorrow morning. Mid 40s by sun up. Would be fun to have another good snow. =)

Although in my neighborhood if there is even a tiny bit of ice it is next to impossible to get out of our street. The hills that go near the creeks are almost impossible.

Well, this is what YNN has to say, so it looks like we'll be spared icy roads in the morning for the most part. I love that it's going to be in the 70's on Valentine's Day. Don'tcha just love Texas weather?


Winter Weather Advisory extended until 6 pm this evening. Sleet, snow and freezing rain are possible along and west of I-35. No significant accumulations expected but some bridges and elevated roads could be icy. Temperatures will rise above freezing by this evening. The impact should be minimal, bridges and overpasses will be the main concern during the morning hours. Temps will head above freezing by late morning and eventually into the mid 40s in the afternoon under cloudy skies.

It was sleeting/somewhat snowing here in Cedar Park a while ago for an hour or so.

We had a little drizzle this morning. No sleet or snow that I saw at Circle C. It got just to 32 last night, and was up to 39 by the time the precipitation started.

We had invisible sleet for a while out here east of Jarrell (you cold hear it but you couldn't see it or feel it even standing out in it), and then huge, fluffy flakes that actually stuck for all of 20 minutes!

Oddly enough, it was in the low 40's earlier in the day.

Guess that's winter for this year. We were also noticing the little green leaves popping out on the various trees and bushes around the house while we were watching it snow.

We could use some measurable precip. The last three rain events haven't produced even 1/10th inch in total. C'mon rain!!! Water in that corn gluten!!!

We've clearly been having different rain events - ours have averaged out at about an inch each.

Then there's the folks in Pflugerville who got about 5 inches, and the folks down in Bastrop (seems like they're being picked on this year), some of who've been flooded out of their homes (the ones that weren't burnt out of theirs last fall).
