Snow is ending across the southern panhandle and rolling plains, but snowy and icy roads will remain well into the morning hours.  Across west central Texas, the band of sleet and snow has moved moved south and east into the southern Big Country/eastern Concho valley region and down into the northern Hill Country.  Ballinger, Brady, Comanche and Eastland are all seeing mostly light to moderate sleet at this time. San Saba, Mason and Rocksprings should all be seeing a transition to sleet/freezing rain by now or very shortly as temps have dropped to 32 degrees.  So far, Austin and San Antonio have not seen any winter precipitation, but with temps currently in the mid 30s and dropping, and with precipitation moving in from the southwest, we expect to see some winter weather development in the form of freezing rain by around 11pm.  For north central Texas and the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, we continue to see conditions deteriorate.  Bridges across the western and northern portions of the DFW metroplex have become very slick and hazardous with road closures and numerous accidents being reported.  Several bands of sleet are currently impacting the region, with a heavier band of snow and sleet just off to the west.  Sleet has also extended northeast of the metroplex into Paris with road conditions worsening there as well. It’s expected that the majority of the winter precip for north central Texas will fall within the next 4 or 5 hours, with only light precipitation expected into the pre-dawn hours.   We will continue to monitor conditions throughout the night and provide updates for all the night owls!
