Our winter weather potential is extremely high, but winter weather impacts are possible late Thursday through Friday. The areas with the greatest winter threat will be along and west of I-35. We’ll have to keep a very close eye on where our temperatures will be at Thursday night and Friday morning. That will depend on how much winter precip we will see.
