The San Antonio and Bexar County's Emergency Operations Center is urging residents to avoid non-essential travel on Tuesday due to the winter storm.

Still, a number of accidents have been reported across the city.

As of 10:45 Tuesday morning, the EOC reported that San Antonio police officers were working on 49 accidents while San Antonio Fire Department had already responded to 11 car crashes, two structure fire calls and two EMS calls for heat/cold exposure.

Due to the accidents, the city has reported numerous street closures, including Commerce St. W at Frio, Cupples Road at Roselawn, Guadalupe St. at Frio and Nacogdoches at Titian. Keep up to date with all city street closures here. Meanwhile, VIA's services are operating on a regular schedule, though there may be delays in some areas.

As far as highways, Texas Department of Transportation has reported closures at various interchanges along Loop 410, I-10, Loop 1604 and US 281, most notably. TxDOT will update information on street conditions and closures on Twitter, as will SAPD.

The press release also shares a report from the National Weather Service, which says the San Antonio area may see a mix of freezing rain and sleet from a tenth of an inch up to a quarter of an inch. According to the report, there is a chance of snow along the Rio Grande Valley, Hill Country and Central Texas as long as there is precipitation.

Additionally, CPS Energy has reported 12 outages that have affected around 1,380 customers. You can keep up with the latest update regarding CPS outages here.
