Special Statement
Issued: 3:49 AM CST Feb. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Light wintry weather possible tonight...

Very light precipitation will hit the area tonight, as
temperatures fall to near or just below the freezing mark. Even
though only a few hundredths of an inch is expected, it might be
just enough in the form of light snow or light freezing rain to
wet roadways and make them slick at times. If this occurs, it will
mostly likely be on bridges, overpasses, and secondary or
untreated roads.

Temperatures will warm above freezing fairly quickly, as soon as
the sun starts to rise Sunday morning.
