MORE ICE?
Here we go!  After reaching 70 Wednesday afternoon, temps fell into the 40s by 6 PM and will continue to fall below freezing after midnight in the Metro, earlier in the Hill Country.  Scattered rain showers will transition to areas of freezing rain and sleet - meaning icy conditions are possible.  It's looking likely for elevated surfaces to turn icy, possible for untreated sidewalks and roads.  Ice accumulation could reach 1/10" with the highest amounts expected in the Hill Country.  Minor accumulation is also possible in the Austin Metro, so be careful!  Remember flyovers, bridges and overpasses develop icy patches first...so plan on possible delays and detours if you do have to be out on the roads.  Travel is not recommended Thursday morning.  We'll warm above freezing by around 9-10 AM in the Metro and closer to noon in the Hill Country with the last precipitation moving out probably by 8 AM or so. 

COWBOY BREAKFAST
If you're planning to head to Rodeo Austin's annual kick-off event Friday at the Long Center - plan on wearing lots of layers!  I'm forecasting a temp of 27 with wind chills in the upper teens to low 20s for the event which is scheduled from 6 to 9 AM.  Skies should be mainly clear.

IT'S MY PARK DAY
Thousands of volunteers will be heading to parks across Austin Saturday morning to help clean up and beautify them.  The forecast?  Mostly cloudy and with temps around 37 at 9 AM and around 47 at noon.  Bundle up!  There is a slight chance of a passing shower - but I think the rain should hold off until afternoon.  I'll be taking part in the Dove Springs Playground clean-up along with several other KEYE staffers.  If you'd like to volunteer your time, it's not too late to sign up: Here's a link to the clean-up sites and volunteers still needed: http://www.austinparks.org/multi-project-list.html?eventid=861
