Dozens of North Texas school districts are either closed, opening late or going to virtual learning Thursday because of a Winter Weather Advisory that was expanded and extended Wednesday.
Areas of freezing drizzle and light freezing rain will continue across much of North Texas into Thursday afternoon. NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist Rick Mitchell said a quarter of an inch of ice accumulation is possible and that's expected to impact travel particularly on elevated roads, bridges, and overpasses.
