* An area of heavy sleet mixed with rain and snow continues to move east from San Saba north to Hamilton, Hico, and Stephenville. There have been a couple cloud to ground lightning strikes with this storm and it does have a history of producing sleet. This storm could dump a quick accumulation of sleet on all surfaces resulting in slick roads for a while. It’s moving east and could impact I-35 around 8 AM.
* Precipitation has changed over to sleet and snow across much of the D/FW Metroplex. We have snow quickly accumulating in Frisco and McKinney. We have sleet that has accumulated in northern Tarrant and Denton counties resulting in slick roads and multiple accidents. We have accidents on Interstate 20 in southern Dallas county where sleet is also falling. As sleet/snow continues to fall for the next few hours be mindful of slick spots on roads. It didn’t help that we had sleet fall longer than we thought it would and thus icy spots on roads. Take it carefully this morning in the D/FW Metroplex
* Rain mixed with some sleet and snow continue aross Northeast Texas. At this time we’ve heard of a few slick spots but the primary cold air aloft is still over North Texas. Precipitation over Northeast Texas will change over to sleet/snow later this morning resulting in the chance for accumulating winter precipitation. This system is behaving like a troll so I won’t bother even trying to predict how much sleet/snow may fall. It will likely be enough to cause slick roads in spots so keep that in mind.
*At the present rate of movement we’ll see most precipitation exit the D/FW from west to east by 10 AM. We should see most precipitation moving out of Northeast and East Texas by 3 PM. Temperatures behind the precipitation will warm into the 40s and quickly melt any accumulations on roads. The evening rush hour should be much better in comparison to this morning.
