The precipitation will come to an end around midnight tonight with a brief possibility of a wintry mix west of I-30 with no accumulations expected. For much of the area, a return to much colder, freezing temperatures will start soon after the precipitation ends. Low temperatures along and north of I-20 will reach the mid to upper 20s with most sites north of I-30 reaching the lower 20s.”
