The next storm develops over eastern Texas tomorrow and brings us a wintry mix on New Year’s Day, starting mid-morning. Freezing rain, rain, and snow will create hazardous road conditions.

The wintry mix is due to the current storm track.

This could change. If the track jogs farther north, we will receive mainly cold rain. If it tracks more to the south, we could end up with more snow.
