LATE SEASON COLD FRONT CHILLS BRAZOS VALLEY

The National Weather Service reports that most of the rain has ended in the Brazos Valley but the hard freeze warning continues through the mid-morning hours.

Travel advisories were issued in about half of the state as a late season wet cold front blew into the state Sunday afternoon.

A wintry mix of rain, some light snowfall and sleet made it to the Brazos Valley by Sunday evening.

Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Bob Colwell  said road crews began pre-treating bridges in the Brazos Valley. 

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas asked Texas power customers to conserve energy through Monday.  They cite high demand along with sub-freezing temperatures and the emergency shutdown of two generating plant on January 6th for repairs.

Temperatures are expected to rise to the 40s by later today (Monday).
