NBC 5 Forecast: Watch for Refreezing Overnight




    DFW Airport received 3.5" of sleet and snow last night. That's the fourth heaviest snowfall we have ever seen in the month of March.  And some areas received 4 to 5" totals!  But sunshine, increased traffic, and temperatures above freezing melted much of the snow on main highhways.  But some side roads and secondary roads, especially low spots, or shaded portions of roads, remain slushy.  And that slush will refreeze overnight as temperaturess drop back below freezing.  Expect slippery spots into the early morning hours on Friday, although problems won't be nearly as bad or widespread as they were Thursday morning. 


    TONIGHT:  Clear and cold.  Spotty areas of ice-slicked roads are expected. Some patchy fog may form.  Low: 24.  Wind: Calm.

    FRIDAY:  Slick spots early in the morning, then sunny and cool.  High: 48.  Wind: S 5-10 mph.

    SATURDAY:  Mostly sunny and milder.  Increasing clouds by evening.  Low: 32.  High: 54.  Wind: S 5 mph.

    SUNDAY:  Mostly cloudy and cool, with a 30% chance of light rain, especially south of the Metroplex.  Low: 40.  High: 57.  Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

    MONDAY:  Morning clouds, then sunny and mild.  Low: 43.  High: 61.  Wind: E 5-10 mph.

    TUESDAY:  Sunny and warmer.  Low: 43.  High: 64.  Wind: E 5 mph.

    WEDNESDAY:  Sunny and warm.  Low: 46.  High: 69.  Wind: SE 10 mph.

    THURSDAY:  Mostly sunny and warm.  Low: 47.  High: 71.  Wind: S 10 mph.
