Snow Comes to an End

Jerry Glover

Mild winter weather gave way to snow in North Texas on Sunday.

The National Weather Service downgraded a Winter Storm Watch, and most North Texas counties are now under a Winter Weather Advisory until 9 a.m. Monday.

A soaking storm system moved into North Texas early Sunday morning before sunrise. Rain began changing to snow in eastern portions of North Texas Sunday morning, with reports of snow in downtown Dallas just before 11:30 a.m.

Snow totals at DFW Airport were only a quarter inch, but accumulations were much heavier north and east of the Metroplex with cities like McKinney registering 4 inches, Plano 2 inches, while Sulphur Springs and Cooper both measured 6 inches of snow, according to NBC DFW Meteorologist David Finfrock.

Dallas and Tarrant counties saw enough snow to stick to grassy surfaces, but only briefly.

Freezing drizzle is possible overnight Sunday into Monday and temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 20s. Bridges and overpasses could become slick and icy making for hazardous conditions for the Monday morning commute, according to Finfrock.
