Cherokee will be under a Winter Weather Advisory from tomorrow at 4 p.m. until Wednesday at 7 a.m., according to an update from the National Weather Service. Sunday night, rain and snow showers likely.
The weather service forecasts snow, with gusty winds developing and "very cold wind chills".
TUESDAY: Breezy and frigid with decreasing clouds early. A northwest wind of 5 to 7 miles per hour will become light and variable in the evening.
The winter weather would come just more than a week after a light snow storm coated the area in frozen precipitation, which made area roads slick.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy, breezy, and slightly warmer.
Wind chill advisory: Wind chill advisory in effect from 9 p.m. Tuesday until 9 a.m. Wednesday. Forecasters say there's a good chance of wintry precipitation in the Austin area, potentially as far south as San Antonio.
Temperatures are expected to drop to the mid-teens to around 20 degrees both tonight and Wednesday night. The rest of the region will also be in negative wind chill territory overnight.
Even lower temperatures were expected before daybreak, and the afternoon high should only reach 11 degrees in the capital city.
Tuesday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 0.
The snow should end by noon Wednesday, when the high will be near 32.
Thursday Night: Clear, with a low around 20. Northwest wind around 5 miles per hour. Wind: SE 10 miles per hour.
Temps will warm into the upper 60s and low 70s this weekend as high pressure builds in the upper levels ahead of the next disturbance.
Sunday Night: A 50 percent chance of showers.
Thursday: Sunny with a high near 48.
By midnight, the I-30 corridor could have made the transition to all snow, while the I-20 corridor could start to see some freezing rain and sleet mix in. Cloudy, with a low around 24.
