Winter Weather Returns to Texoma

By  | 

Much of North Texas and Southern Oklahoma was under a winter weather advisory earlier today.

National Weather Service forecasters say a mixture of light freezing rain, sleet, and snow affected most of the area as an upper level disturbance moves east over the cold air at the surface.

Forecasters say precipitation amounts will be light until this afternoon, when it’s expected to change to a cold rain. Temperatures across the area were near or just below freezing this morning, but are expected to slowly warm through the day. By early afternoon, temperatures should be above freezing across most of the area.

Some roadways, especially bridges and overpasses could quickly become slick. Motorists are urged to allow extra time for their trip and be prepared for rapidly changing road conditions.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of winter precipitation may cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and plan on some travel delays.
