November 30, 2006 at 1:44 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Morning weather balloon data shows most of the precip for the rest of this morning will be in the form of sleet and freezing rain, with just a little snow mixed in.

At 8:30, the 32 degree/freezing line had moved through all of Denton, Collin, Tarrant and all but extreme SE Dallas County.

Any precipitation falling in these counties, including Fort Worth, Dallas, Frisco, Plano, Denton and McKinney will be sleet or freezing rain. Ground temps are still warm enough to keep most mainline roads and highways from freezing, but ALL untreated bridges and overpasses, and some sidewalks will be slick and hazardous from ice accumulation.

Another area of sleet, freezing rain and light snow will move across Tarrant, Denton, Collin and Dallas Counties between 8:30 and 10am. Accumulations are expected to be minor, but a quick burst of sleet and freezing rain will cause slick bridges and overpasses.
