A very cold start to the month of February with the continuation of this ice storm across the Concho Valley. Still seeing freezing rain mixed with some sleet pretty widespread across the area. Afternoon temps still struggling to get out of the 20s, with our highs this afternoon in the low 30s, continuing our below freezing temps, for yet another cold day. Winds have calmed down, and now just at about 5 mph and out of the north northeast. As we pass into our evening hours, we continue our chances at seeing some freezing rain. Temps drop even colder than this afternoon and we return to the mid to upper 20s for overnight lows.
Freezing rain finally shifts over to rain showers tomorrow morning, as we finally reach above freezing. Our afternoon highs gaining into the low to mid 40s for the Concho Valley. Rain chances also push off to the east throughout the afternoon and we start to clear out. Winds pick up slightly ranging from 5-10 mph and out of the northwest. Shifting to the overnight hours, our temps drop into the mid to upper 20s with a possibility of seeing some refreezing of all of this precipitation across our area, possibly producing hazardous road conditions for early Friday commute. Skies clear and overnight we see mostly clear skies, and winds out of the north northwest around 5 mph.
