    Snow flurries began falling on parts of North Texas early Monday morning, accumulating up to 2 inches in some areas north of Interstate 30 and west of Interstate 35W.

    Denton reported snow and a winter mix, but the roads were warm enough that the snow did not stick.  In Wise County, NBC 5 Crews encountered large snow flakes at around 4:30 a.m. Parts of the county had seen 2 inches of snow on grassy surfaces and cars before 6:30 a.m.

    With the snow came a few delays to area schools. By 8 a.m., four school districts (Alvord, Chico, Forestburg and Poolville) had delayed the start of school until 10 a.m.  No districts have canceled classes. (See complete list of school closings here)

    Power outages were minimal Monday morning, with less than 1,000 customers without service in North Texas and less than 2,400 without power state wide. As of 6pm Monday less than 480 customers were still without power in Dallas and Fort Worth.

    NBC 5 meteorologist Samantha Davies said it will continue to be cloudy, cold and windy for the remainder of the day, with temperatures falling well below freezing all across North Texas. The snow is expected to taper off by noon, with rain ending by late afternoon.

    Until then, the Texas Department of Transportation remains on standby ready to respond to any problems on the roads.
