...Wintry precipitation remains possible across North and Central
Texas Monday night through Tuesday. Much colder weather expected
Monday night through Wednesday night...

* LOCATIONS IMPACTED...All of North and Central Texas.

* TIMING...Light rain transitioning to light sleet and snow, with
  a brief period of freezing rain possible in between. Transition
  time: early evening along the Red River, late evening along the
  I-20 corridor, then after midnight south of a Goldthwaite-Athens

* ACCUMULATIONS...Generally less than 1/10 of an inch of
  ice and less than a half inch of sleet and snow. Locally higher
  amounts will be possible.

* IMPACTS...Travel will likely become hazardous area-wide Monday
  night and remain hazardous on Tuesday. Driving could become very
  difficult at times, particularly along and south of the I-20
  corridor where locally higher totals are more likely.

* TEMPERATURES...Temperatures will drop into the 20s Monday night
  with wind chills in the single digits to teens. Highs Tuesday
  will be in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Lows will be in the teens
  Tuesday night with a gradual warm-up for Wednesday.

The possibility of hazardous and disruptive travel conditions
exists across North and Central Texas Monday night into Tuesday.
In addition to planning for possible delays and alternate travel
plans, preparations should also be made to protect the things most
vulnerable during unseasonably cold weather: including pets,
pipes, plants, and of course, people.
