An Arctic blast has arrived, with dangerously cold temperatures continuing through the middle of next week. Temperatures will remain below freezing from today through Wednesday morning for nearly all of North and Central Texas. Protect exposed and vulnerable pipes by covering or wrapping them if you haven’t already done so, and drip your indoor faucets during the prolonged sub-freezing temperatures. Check on your loved ones and neighbors, and ensure all pets are indoors.


A mix of wintry precipitation is expected across North and Central Texas beginning today and ending Monday morning. Most regions will likely see between 0.01 and 0.10 inches of mainly freezing rain and sleet. Higher ice accumulations in Eastern Central Texas may impact most surface streets and elevated roads/bridges. There is a chance for snow in far Northeastern counties, including Paris, up to a half-inch.


Winter precipitation will start today and continue through late Monday morning. The primary precipitation type throughout the region will be freezing rain or sleet. The main areas with a potential for snow will be along the Red River. The most significant impacts will be across Eastern Central Texas, where freezing rain accumulations will range between 0.10″ to 0.15.” Stay home if possible, as slick roads start this afternoon.


If you must venture outdoors over the next few days, cover exposed skin and dress in layers to reduce your risk of frostbite or hypothermia. Learn to protect yourself from the cold weather at weather.gov/safety/cold
