Updated: Jan 31
If, like me, you have been anxiously awaiting a bit of winter weather before spring arrives, this is your lucky week.
Not only is Old Man Winter blowing into North Texas on Monday, he’s bringing with him a chance for icy roads and sleet.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Erath County beginning Monday afternoon through Thursday morning.
Here’s what forecasters say we should expect:
Significant icing possible due to freezing rain. Total ice accumulations of one tenth to one quarter of an inch, particularly on elevated surfaces and bridges.
Some sleet will be possible.
Tuesday will have the most significant impacts to travel.
Other areas under the Winter Storm Watch include Comanche, Eastland, Hamilton, Hood, Palo Pinto, Somervell, Tarrant and Dallas counties.
