    The wind gusts that accompanied a cold front in North Texas Friday have calmed, but colder temperatures are on the way for Saturday morning.

    The National Weather Service in Fort Worth issued a Freeze Warning for Saturday from 1 a.m. until 9 a.m. for the following counties: Collin, Comanche, Cooke, Delta, Denton, Eastland, Erath, Fannin, Grayson, Hood, Hopkins, Hunt, Jack, Lamar, Montague, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rains, Somervell, Stephens, Wise and Young.

    Some sleet was reported across North Texas early Friday afternoon, but any icy precipitation melted upon contact. Reports of sleet were received from Abilene to Denison, more locally in Keller, Denton, Fort Worth and places in between.
