The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a winter weather advisory for light ice accumulations which is in effect from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday for Palo Pinto, Parker, Eastland, Erath, Hood, Comanche, Grayson, Fannin, Wise, Denton, Collin, Tarrant, Dallas and Rockwall counties.
Light freezing rain will develop across the advisory area early Sunday morning and increase in intensity through afternoon. Some sleet or snow may mix in through the late afternoon hours. Light icing on elevated roads and bridges will be possible Sunday morning into the afternoon hours. Temperatures will be near or slightly above freezing during the day which should inhibit icing on main roads. If sleet mixes in during the afternoon, some light accumulations will occur on roads. Greatest impacts will be seen across northwest parts of the advisory area, mainly northwest of Fort Worth and Dallas where temperatures will be colder and there is a better chance of accumulating ice and sleet.
The weather service also issued a winter storm warning for snow, sleet and some ice accumulation which is in effect from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday for Cooke, Jack, Montague, Stephens and Young counties. Light freezing rain will begin early Sunday morning and gradually increase in intensity through late morning. A transition to sleet and snow is expected by afternoon with precipitation coming to an end during the evening.
