Heat to sleet: wintry weather arrives in North Texas

From heat to sleet – it’s been a wild 24 hours for North Texans.

A wave of sleet fell across North Texas midday Friday, just 24 hours after the area hit a high of 86 degrees on Thursday.

The sleet was a little heavier west and north west of Fort Worth in Parker, Palo Pinto and Wise counties. But the sleet did not cause any problems on the roads.

When it wasn't sleeting, it was blustery with strong wind gusts and temperatures in the 50's during the day Friday.

Up next for North Texans is an even colder night and a freeze warning for some areas. The freeze warning includes Collin and Denton counties, but doesn’t include Dallas, Tarrant or Rockwall.

A breeze will remain overnight, so wind chills will be a factor for those out late. By Saturday morning, temperatures will be in the mid-30s from the Metroplex south and east, but in the lower 30s north and west so freeze warnings have been posted.

After a cold sunny start Saturday, most areas will rebound to near 60 by afternoon. Winds will die off at night, so temperatures will plummet quickly into the 30s late Saturday into Sunday and some locations will again have possible frosts or freezes.
