Austin Community College District has announced that classes will begin at 11 a.m., and classes and activities prior to that are cancelled.

Here is the latest from the National Weather Service:
...HEADLINE...The Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory have been cancelled for locations south of Interstate 10, and scaled back to end a 9 am for areas north of Interstate 10. Bexar County and Metro San Antonio are not included in any advisory.
...AREA OF CONCERN...The entire area along and north of Interstate 10, but not including Metro San Antonio. Special concern for areas along and north of Texas 71 including Metro Austin.
...IMPACTS...Light ice accumulation possible on bridges, flyovers, and some roads in the Winter Weather Advisory area. Exposed surfaces where cold air can get underneath (e.g., cars, decks) may also see light icing. More significant impacts possible in the Winter Storm Warning area, including roads ice covered. Minor damage (e.g., tree or power lines) may occur in the warning area. This morning's commute will be at least slow due to wet roads, but will be dangerous anywhere there is ice. There is no threat for the Tuesday evening commute, as we expect dry roads by midday.
...TIMING...Precipitation is expected to end and temperatures warm above freezing by 9 am for most areas. Melting of any ice on roads should be quick by late morning as skies clear and drier air moves in.
