It’s going to feel a little like winter over the next few days.
The Austin area received its first batch of measurable snowfall Monday morning ahead of a cold front that’s expected to linger through Tuesday night.
A dusting of wet, heavy snow spattered the area this morning and continued to fall through the morning commute, reducing visibility at times. About a half-inch of snow was expected in some spots, according to the National Weather Service. Though roads were a bit slick, there were no weather warnings or delays.
Monday’s high will only reach about 30, with temperatures falling to around 12 overnight, according to the weather service. Tuesday’s high is 27, with a low of 17. Temperatures will warm back up with a high of 40 Wednesday and highs in the mid-40s by Thursday and Friday.
There is a slight chance for rain and snow Thursday.
