Snow Ends, More Remains in Friday's Forecast

Little or no accumulation expected from Friday snowfall

    With two winter storms over and a third on the way, North Texas may soon see more winter precipitation.

    The latest winter storm pushed through North Texas with light snowfall Wednesday morning, just two days after a storm dropped up to an inch of sleet that quickly turned to ice on Metroplex roadways leading to school closures, flight delays and car crashes Monday and Tuesday.


    Snow totals Wednesday in the Dallas-Fort Worth area were generally under an inch, however areas to the south and southeast of Dallas recorded totals of up to four inches. A Winter Weather Advisory for Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Rockwall and Kaufman counties, and other counties to the east, will expire at noon.

    With temperatures expected to climb into the 40s Wednesday, the slushy morning snow is not expected to stick around or pose any threat to area roads.

    Temperatures will remain cold through the week, NBC 5 Meteorologist Remeisha Shade said, with a high of 42 Wednesday, 40 on Thursday and 37 on Friday, where there is again a chance for light snow with little or no accumulation.

    Temperatures will climb back into the low 60s by early next week.

    NBC 5 sent a team of reporters to cover Wednesday's heaviest snowfall.
