SMCISD announces closure ahead of winter weather

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

San Marcos Consolidated ISD’s campuses and offices will be closed Thursday and Friday due to expected inclement weather and unsafe road conditions. 

SMCISD said it will return to regular district operations on Monday, Feb. 7. 

“Please take care of your families, stay safe, and we look forward to reuniting next week,” SMCISD said in a correspondence to families. 

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Hays County, which goes into effect on Thursday at 3 a.m. and stretches through the day until 6 p.m. 

The San Marcos area is expected to see patchy fog then rain showers Wednesday, according to NWS. Alongside rain, San Marcos will see a strong, arctic cold front blow through the region. Rain will continue overnight as temperatures plummet to near freezing. NWS is forecasting a 90% chance of wintry mix Thursday as temperatures struggle to get above freezing. 

NWS’ winter weather warning states that significant icing is expected with a mix of freezing rain and sleet. Additionally, ice accumulations of 1/10 to 1/4 of an inch is expected. Total sleet accumulations of ¼ to ½-inches is possible across the Hill Country. 

NWS is warning that travel could be “very difficult” on untreated roads, especially elevated bridges, overpasses and roadways. Additionally, sidewalks and pavement will be slippery to walk on. NWS also warns that there’s a risk for hypothermia for those who spend extended time outdoors and are not dressed in layers and gloves.
