San Angelo Could See a Dusting of Snow Saturday
SAN ANGELO, TX -- Forecasters predict heavy rain in the Concho Valley Friday and now there is a chance of some light snow Saturday.
According to the National Weather Service office in San Angelo, temperatures will drop into the mid 30s Thursday night with rain chances increasing.
By Friday, there is a 100 percent chance of significant rainfall with temperatures in the mid 40s.
Friday night there is an 80 percent chance of rain and temperatures will be in the mid 30s.
Forecasters say temperatures may be cold enough around midnight Friday night into Saturday morning to support a wintry mix of precipitation for areas north of a Sterling City to Bronte to Winters to Albany to Throckmorton line.
As temperatures fall Friday night, rain may begin to mix with or change over to freezing rain or sleet.
The wintry mix may include some snow by Saturday morning.
Although we don`t expect significant accumulations at this time, roads may become slick and hazardous.
Bridges, elevated surfaces, and exposed objects like power lines will be the first to see any accumulations of ice should they occur.
The farther north of Interstate 20, the better chance for accumulating wintry precipitation. If travel is necessary for these areas, caution is advised, but postponement of travel is ideal.
This is a developing story.
