Freezing rain, sleet possible Saturday night into Sunday morning

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth issued its latest update on the potential for some freezing rain and sleet during the overnight hours Saturday and into Sunday morning across parts of North and Central Texas. The wintry precipitation may cause some problems on elevated roads and bridges. Some main roads may also have ice accumulations if bands of sleet showers or bursts of freezing rain occur.

A cold front is moving through North and Central Texas this morning and will send temperatures falling into the 20s and 30s for the remainder of the day. An upper level disturbance will move through the state tonight with areas of light freezing rain and sleet developing in the vicinity of San Angelo and spreading north and east into North Texas early Sunday morning. Some heavier sleet showers or bursts of freezing rain will be possible through Sunday morning.

Light ice or sleet accumulations can be expected across parts of the area causing problems mainly on elevated roads and bridges but some main roads may also have some ice accumulations. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for parts of the area and may need to be expanded later today.

Otherwise, wind chill values in the teens or low 20s can be expected tonight and early Sunday.

Stay updated to the forecast this weekend.
