Hill Country, Bexar County feeling the freezing temperatures, experiencing some icy conditions

Tuesday is one of the coldest mornings of the week with some freezing rain in the Hill Country.

SAN ANTONIO — Cold weather is bearing down on San Antonio and the Hill Country on Tuesday. These wintry conditions are expected to stick around until Thursday morning.

After Sunday afternoon brought temperatures in the mid-70s to the Alamo City, the cold front caused the mercury to plummet into the 30s and 40s for the region to start the week. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Bexar County and the Hill Country region stretching toward Austin until 6 a.m. on Thursday.

Overhead clouds and shower activity could bring up to two inches of rain to the area by Thursday. San Antonians will want to have those sweaters and rain boots; the sun won't return in earnest until Thursday.
