Across Dallas-Fort Worth, bridges and overpasses could see light icing. Be extra careful on these elevated surfaces.

With temperatures dropping below freezing overnight, if there is moisture left on the roadway it could freeze and cause trouble for Wednesday's morning commute.

Police in Hurst said ice was to blame for a deadly crash on Texas 183 between Bedford Road and Brown Trail. At about 2 a.m., a man driving a Ford truck was ejected from his vehicle after crashing on the westbound Texpress lanes. Police said he was speeding when he lost control.

In Wise County, authorities worked to clear the scene of a jackknifed 18-wheeler at about 3 a.m. on northbound U.S. 287 at farm-to-market road 407. Drivers in both directions are being diverted to F.M. 407. No one was hurt. HazMat was dispatched to help clear the wreck.
