Freezing rain possible overnight in parts of North Texas

Nearly all of North Texas is under a winter weather advisory.

Freezing rain and its potential to affect roadways is the main concern. Many people will be impacted on their way to church or getting out and about Sunday morning. Freezing rain is expected overnight in some places between midnight and noon Sunday.

TxDot crews were out treating roads in the Fort Worth area Friday. Local emergency managers are now working to get the word out, asking people to prepare as best they can. That includes making sure windshield wiper fluid is the type that will not freeze, having a coat or blanket in the car and a full tank of gas in case drivers become stranded and need to wait for emergency assistance. If there are power outages, make sure to have a heat source as well.

"The biggest issue is that transition time from when it starts to rain to when that rain starts to turn into freezing drizzle, so the biggest issue we're going to be watching in those overnight hours are the impacts on the roadways from that freezing rain and drizzle," said Johnson County Emergency Manager Jamie Moore.
