Winter Storm Inga Could Bring Snow and Ice to Texas
Find out where you can expect rain and snow, and how your travel conditions might be impacted.
Another snow storm, Winter Storm Inga, is making its way across parts of the U.S., bringing a mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain to areas already feeling the effects of Winter Storm Hunter and Winter Storm Grayson.
Winter Storm Inga is expected to bring a combination of snowy and icy conditions throughout several Southern States on Tuesday, carrying snow and temperatures the National Weather Service refers to as “well below normal” into Kentucky, Tennessee, northern Alabama, northern Mississippi, southern Arkansas, northern Louisiana, and Texas.
The snow storm has already brought in up to 9 inches of snow in some parts of western Kentucky, and up to a half foot of snow in Arkansas, with snowy road conditions also reported in both Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee, according to the Weather Channel’s latest forecast.
States like Texas, which have already been hit with up to three inches of snow in some parts, are facing slippery road conditions across Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, while icy conditions have also arrived in Dallas-Fort Worth.
The Texas winter storm is expected to continue bringing in mixtures of snow and freezing rain throughout Tuesday night, meaning traveling on bridges and overpasses more dangerous because of snow and ice buildups.
According to the Weather Channel’s forecast, the winter storm in Texas could lead to unsafe travel conditions in San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and Corpus Christi. Texas residents should prepare for near freezing temperatures anywhere from 20 to 30 degrees below what the mid-January average in the state, according to the National Weather Service.
Those in Shreveport, Memphis, Nashville and parts of Georgia and Alabama will also want to be cautious of road conditions.
New York can expect some light snow Tuesday night that will continue into cities like Boston and Hartford on Wednesday.
