SHERMAN, TX- Its been steadily falling across much of Texoma for a few hours now. White-outs have even been reported in some areas. There's at least an inch on the ground around Sherman and that's making for some slick roads.

The snow is sticking to roads in Sherman. It’s been steadily coming down for several hours making the roads a little tricky to navigate.

Lots of areas are iced over, making some places impassible. Grayson county drivers encountered plenty of snow that was very heavy at times.

Sherman police say there have been at least a dozen accidents in the city, most of those vehicles sliding off the roadways. The Grand Street overpass in Sherman was shut down about 8:00pm and police say it will be closed for much of the evening because it's too icy to cross.

There's also a report of an 18-wheeler blocking the East control road of 75 near Catfish King.

Denison Police report a few vehicles sliding off the roads, but no major accidents. DPS has had no major accidents either.

We talked to one driver who was out braving the slick streets, just trying to get home. “Being here and seeing snow, all of a sudden its hot one day and cold the next."

Police want to remind you all overpasses and any inclined streets are slick tonight. TXDot and city crews are out sanding. Police even have chains on their patrol cars and are asking that you don't call them unless it's an emergency.

Texoma Christian School will start at 10:00 am Tuesday, two hours behind schedule.
