Precipitation has moved out of the area, but hazardous conditions persist. National Weather Service allowed winter weather warnings and advisories to expire around 3 p.m. Friday. But, ice and sleet accumulation on roadways across North and Central Texas will continue to present hazards for motorists.
Ice and sleet will likely form black or solid ice overnight as temperatures plummet.
Friday night’s low temperature is expected to be about 15 degrees, with regional wind chills as low as two degrees.
A hard freeze warning and wind chill advisory has been issued for locations along and northwest of a line from Breckenridge to Weatherford to McKinney to Bonham. Those locations are most likely to see lows fall to 10 degrees or below Friday night with wind chill readings falling below zero - cold enough to cause exposed pipes to freeze and possibly burst tonight.
Subfreezing temperatures will continue through Sunday morning or Monday and any ice that has accumulated on area roadways or power lines will likely remain in place with travel continuing to be very hazardous.
There is a chance of freezing rain and/or sleet late Saturday through Sunday morning along and east of a line from Bonham to Corsicana and Cameron. Very light ice accumulations are possible.
There is a slight chance for freezing rain Monday and Monday night southeast of a line from Goldthwaite to Waxahachie to Cooper with very light accumulations will be possible.
