SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio and the metro area recorded freezing temperatures overnight into Thursday morning, setting up the perfect conditions for sleet early Thursday morning.

There's a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 11 a.m. for Bexar, Comal, Gonzales, Guadalupe and Hays counties, according to the National Weather Service. Isolated snow and sleet showers are possible, with accumulations reaching up to 1/2 inch.

Temperatures should climb out of the freeze by noon, but we'll stay cold all day with highs barely reaching the lower 40s. 

"There isn't a lot of moisture available with this system," KENS 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Taylor said. "There are two small disturbances that give us a chance of freezing drizzle both Thursday morning and Friday morning. The better of those two is Friday."
