Winter Storm Warning - Through 6 p.m. Friday.
Light icing began in North Texas during the late afternoon, and spread across the Metroplex during the evening. But the worst of the icing is still to come overnight, when we are expecting up to 1/2" of ice accumulationin the Metroplex, and 1" to 2" of sleet in the counties north and west of Fort Worth. Accumulation of this amount will make travel very treacherous. Roads and bridges will be quite icy, tree branches will sag/break and power outages will take place. This wintry mix will begin to taper off by mid-morning Friday. A second round of light icing will be possible Saturday night into early Sunday.
