First Alert Weather: Winter Returns - NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

First Alert Weather: Winter Returns

Mix of Rain, Sleet and Snow Sunday night into Monday AM



    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain
    The weather is not expected to be icy in the DFW Metroplex but the Texas Department of Transportation and other road crews say they will be ready just in case.

    If you thought we'd escape winter without any winter weather, think again.

    The NBC 5 First Alert Weather Team expects a mix of rain, sleet and even snow in parts of North Texas tonight into tomorrow morning.

    The National Weather Service has issued A Winter Weather Advisory from Sunday at 6:00 p.m. until Monday at 9:00 a.m.

    It is in effect along and NorthWest of a line from Eastland to Weatherford to Denton to Paris. Sleet and snow is expected to accumulate up to an inch in Northwest portions of the advisory. And up to a half inch in Southeast portions of the advisory.

    Some models project the wintery mix falling as far south as Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, Parker, Rockwall and Kaufman counties.  Temperatures are expected to stay above freezing.

    Road conditions in the north and west portions of our viewing areas may see some slick spots or have issues with overpasses and bridges. Road conditions closer to the Dallas-Fort Worth area may see more rain than wintery preciptitation.

    NBC 5 Today will have up to the minute road, weather and school reports Monday starting at 4:30 a.m. 

    You can check for Weather Alerts and School Conditions 24 hours a day. And also follow the NBC 5 First Alert Weather Team here on Twitter.

    The Texas Department of Transportation said it has 140 vehicles on standby to treat bridges and overpasses in the Tarrant District.  There are 185 vehicles for treating bridges and overpasses in the Dallas District.
