The Texas Department of Transportation is pretreating Big Country roads in anticipation of wintry weather.

Trucks are spraying a brine mixture on major roads in all 13 counties in the TxDOT Abilene District which includes Taylor, Callahan, Fisher, Haskell, Jones, Kent, Mitchell, Nolan, Scurry, Shackelford and Stonewall counties.

The TxDOT Brownwood District -- which includes Brown, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, McCulloch, Mills, and Stephens counties -- is doing the same.

An approaching cold front is expected to move into the area tonight, bringing frigid temperatures. Light rain with possible snow and/or freezing rain is forecast to move in late Tuesday night and stay into Thursday morning across much of West Central Texas.

The latest road conditions statewide are available at or by calling 1-800-452-9292.
