There's a chance of a light wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow Friday afternoon and evening in North Texas after a strong cold front brought a rapid drop in temperatures.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for portions of North and Central Texas until 3 a.m. Saturday. Sleet accumulations up to one-quarter inch are expected. Plan on slippery elevated roads or bridges.
In most locations, the sleet is expected to be very light and no significant travel impacts are expected across DFW. But to the south, there may be a few heavier bands of sleet, with perhaps as much as 1/4 inch of sleet accumulating on a few bridges and overpasses.
The coldest air settled in Friday morning, dropping temperatures well below freezing with many areas down into the low 20s. Feels-like temperatures dipped into the teens for some.
The Texas Department of Transportation said crews began pretreating roads for potential winter weather. TxDOT asked drivers to be cautious and give road crews plenty of space.
It will take a while to warm back up again. Highs will be in the 30s Friday and the 40s Saturday with temperatures staying cool until Monday, when they're expected to get close to 60.
