For the second time in less than one week, many parts of Deep East Texas will have a chance to see wintry precipitation on Tuesday.
Based on the latest trends, it does appear this event will not contain as much moisture as the one that came through last week. That means that the wintry precipitation will contain lighter accumulations of sleet, snow, and possible freezing rain.
Even though our forecast is trending towards drier conditions and lesser snowfall amounts, it should be noted that even a little wintry precipitation could cause some slick spots on area roadways, especially the bridges and overpasses.
In terms of impacts, it appears most of Deep East Texas will see just a light dusting of snow that would be around an inch or less in many cases.
The southern parts of our KTRE viewing area will have a slightly better chance to see snow mix with sleet and possible freezing rain. That means icing impacts will be a little higher in locations around the Livingston, Colmesneil, Woodville, Jasper, and Newton areas.
Due to the more significant threat being across our southern counties and communities, a **WINTER STORM WARNING** is in effect for Jasper, Newton, Polk, and Tyler counties through 6pm Tuesday.
A **WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY** has been issued for Angelina, Cherokee, Houston, Nacogdoches, Sabine, San Augustine, Shelby, and Trinity counties through 6pm Tuesday. This advisory is not as significant or severe as the winter storm warning, which is why accumulations should be rather light in nature.
One thing to keep in mind is that with winter events in Texas, the forecast is subject to change. Right now, things are trending a little drier, but if that changes, then more impacts could be felt in the Piney Woods.
Any precipitation we see tomorrow morning will move out by the afternoon hours, leading to clearing skies and a hard freeze for Wednesday morning.
