Finally, the winter storm that affected all of Texas with power, water and gas outages is subsiding after Thursday, but Austin is experiencing one more snow day first.

A blanket of fresh snow is laying over Austin with freezing rain, snow and sleet expected until 3 p.m. The high for the day is 32 degrees with a low of 18 degrees tonight, according to the National Weather Service.
