Be Weather Vigilant on Tuesday and Wednesday
Winter weather is headed towards Texas on Tuesday January 24th, 2023. The National Weather service is not predicting freezing temperatures for Hopkins County until Wednesday. That means we will see precipitation, but not sleet, snow accumulation or the dreaded ‘wintry mix’..
Be cautious on bridges and overpasses especially Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Road crews are already pre-treating some major roads in areas across Texas. They are focusing on areas forecast to be colder than Hopkins County.
Though we should not see the worst of the storm, power lines and the power grid may falter. Ice and strong winds could damage lines and cause power outages.
KSST will be monitoring the weather continuously. Stay tuned for updates.
