Episode Narrative Cold air poured into South Central Texas on January 14 and 15 in the wake of a strong cold front, with temperatures ranging from the mid 30s to just below freezing early on the morning of January 15. At the same time, an upper level disturbance began to approach South Texas from the southwest. Light precipitation from the upper level system began falling through the cold air and freezing over the northwest counties first. With time, the event spread to the west and southeast, including all but the extreme southern tier of counties, by January 16. Spotty 1 to 2 inch snowfalls were common over the Hill Country and Edwards Plateau. The serious problems were associated with coatings of freezing rain and drizzle that varied from one-half inch to three-quarters of an inch in thickness. In many locations, schools and businesses and local offices were already closed on January 15 due to the Martin Luther King Holiday and simply did not re-open until Wednesday, January 16, or Thursday, January 17. Hundreds of accidents were reported on interstate highways as well as city and rural roads, causing additional closures and problems. Most area schools were closed on January 16 as a result of the storm.
Event Narrative Light freezing rain and drizzle began near 3 pm on January 15. Roads were closed that evening as ice built up over the county. Businesses, city and county offices, and schools remained closed through January 16.
