...FREEZING TEMPERATURES MAY LEAD TO SLICK SPOTS ON AREA ROADWAYS
OVERNIGHT...

BASED ON VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY...SUNSHINE AND TEMPERATURES IN
THE UPPER 30S WERE ENOUGH TO MELT MOST OF THE SNOW AND ICE ON THE
ROADWAYS FOR LOCATIONS ALONG AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM COMANCHE TO
ATHENS. HOWEVER TO THE NORTH...THERE WAS STILL SOME EVIDENCE OF AT
LEAST LIGHT SNOW AND SLEET STILL ON THE GROUND...AND POSSIBLY ON
AREA ROADWAYS.

OVERNIGHT LOWS ARE EXPECTED TO FALL WELL BELOW FREEZING TONIGHT
ACROSS NORTH TEXAS. FOR LOCATIONS WHERE WATER OR SLUSH REMAIN ON
AREA ROADWAYS A REFREEZING WILL OCCUR. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO FALL BACK BELOW FREEZING AFTER 9 PM THIS EVENING. AFTER THIS
TIME...WET OR SLUSHY ROADWAYS WILL BECOME ICY AGAIN. WHILE NO
ADDITIONAL PRECIPITATION WILL FALL...ROADWAYS COULD BECOME
DANGEROUS BY FRIDAY MORNING AS TEMPERATURES FALL INTO THE LOW TO
MID 20S. THESE TEMPERATURES ARE COLD ENOUGH TO CAUSE ANY LINGERING
WATER OR SLUSH TO FREEZE ON ALL AREA ROADWAYS.

TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO CLIMB ABOVE FREEZING TOMORROW MORNING
BY 10 AM. ON FRIDAY...ANOTHER FULL DAY OF SUNSHINE COMBINED WITH
TEMPERATURES IN THE 40S IN THE AFTERNOON IS EXPECTED TO BE ENOUGH
TO MELT ANY LINGERING SNOWFALL ACROSS THE REGION. THESE CONDITIONS
SHOULD ALSO HELP TO DRY OUT ROADS BEFORE TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW
FREEZING EARLY SATURDAY MORNING.
