AUSTIN ( -- Forecasts continue to hold a slight chance of wintry precipitation for the Austin area late Wednesday into early Thursday morning.

After temperatures surged into the 70s for the past few days, an arctic front pushed through the area late Tuesday dropping temperatures into the mid 30s in the metro area.

Late Wednesday, a disturbance is expected to push through the area, creating the chance for another round of precipitation. Depending on temperatures, that precipitation could fall as snow flurries where it does fall.

No accumulations are expected, with temperatures at ground level hovering above the freezing mark. Elevated surfaces could develop some slick spots with temperatures near freezing, but TxDOT crews spent much of Tuesday treating roadways in and around Austin.

Precipitation will clear out by sunrise Thursday, and temperatures will quickly rebound following the winter blast - with highs expected to be back near 70 by Friday into the weekend.
