Agencies monitor weather conditions with more ice expected Friday


San Marcos area schools, Texas State University, city and county offices opened two hours later than normal on Thursday as an unexpected winter mix created icy road conditions and caused some 20 minor wrecks, most on Interstate 35 in San Marcos.

Emergency management officers for the City of San Marcos, Hays County, Texas State University and San Marcos Consolidated Independent  School District will monitor weather conditions overnight Thursday into Friday morning and make the call early tomorrow about any weather delays.

The National Weather service predicts a chance of freezing drizzle and sleet Thursday night into Friday as an upper level disturbance moves across Texas. Narrow bands of heavier precipitation, as occurred this morning between New Braunfels and San Marcos and east of I-35, are possible.

Local governments and agencies are working closely together to coordinate responses and notify the public. San Marcos CISD sends out telephone, text and email alerts to parents and school staff. Texas State also notifies its students and staff by text alerts.

City Marshal and Emergency Operations Center Manager Ken Bell reported about 20 minor wrecks Thursday morning, most on Interstate 35 between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.
