Comal County and the City of New Braunfels are preparing for single-digit wind chill temperatures Sunday through Wednesday.

Periods of breezy wind will make lows of 13 to 28 degrees feel even colder than they are, the U.S. National Weather Service Austin-San Antonio, which is headquartered in New Braunfels, said today. The coldest wind chill is expected Tuesday morning when many locations will feel like they are in the single digits or below 0 degrees.

County Public Information Officer Cary Zayas said light icing of between 0.01 to 0.05 inches is possible between 6 a.m. Sunday and 6 a.m. Tuesday.

County road crews are preparing to treat roadways if necessary, and Comal County Sheriff’s deputies will be on regular patrol.

New Braunfels road crews are standing by to lay down gravel and de-icing agents on local roads and bridges if needed. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is making similar preparations for I-35 and other major highways.

Should road closures become necessary, residents can find updated local closure information at newbraunfels.gov.

Restrooms, water fountains and other facilities in City of New Braunfels parks have been winterized and will be closed on Saturday, Sunday, Monday or until freezing temperatures end.
