AUSTIN ( -- Austinites are waking up to a light dusting of snow Thursday morning, but fortunately very few travel impacts.

Widespread reports of wintry precipitation across the metro area began around 10 p.m. Wednesday, coming to an end by about 1 a.m. Thursday morning.

Officially at the city's two climate reporting stations, Camp Mabry and ABIA, a trace of snow was recorded. In Williamson County, official stations recorded a quarter of an inch to a half an inch of snow. It's the first measurable snowfall in Austin since December 2017.

Some isolated reports of slick road conditions were keeping first responders and TxDOT crews busy in the early morning hours before sunrise, particularly on elevated overpasses.

With the precipitation all cleared out, sunny conditions will return Thursday with highs in the 50s. Warmer weather will continue to push back into the area towards the weekend, with highs in the lower 70s.
