Temperatures have warmed slightly, allowing the freezing line to stop advancing eastward. Still, freezing temperatures remain in place north of a Bonham to Denton to Mineral Wells line. Freezing rain and sleet continue to fall in these areas, but the slightly warmer temperatures may allow for some melting; however, roads will remain very slick through the rest of the evening and overnight hours. To the south of the freezing line, light to moderate rain continues, with rain rates of one-tenth to one-quarter inch per hour expected.
Where is the freezing line? At 4 PM, the 32 degree line was located from near Bonham to Denton, to Stephenville, and then to Cisco.
The Ice Storm Warning has been canceled and replaced with a Winter Weather Advisory. A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect for Montague, Cooke, Grayson, Fannin, Young, Jack, Wise, Denton, Stephens, Palo Pinto, Parker, Eastland, Comanche, Erath, Hood, and Somervell Counties until noon Thursday. Freezing drizzle or light freezing rain is expected, with additional accumulations of up to one-tenth of an inch expected. This ice accumulation will result in difficult travel conditions, including during the morning commute Thursday. Slow down and use caution while driving.
It will be cloudy and cold Thursday morning with a chance of rain or freezing rain along and northwest of a Goldthwaite to Sherman line. There will be a chance of rain elsewhere. Temperaturees will rise into the lower 30s northwest to the mid 40s southeast by midday. Some light ice accumulations will be possible in the areas where temperatures are below freezing.
A Flood Watch remains in effect for Grayson, Fannin, Lamar, Collin, Hunt, Delta, Hopkins, Dallas, Rockwall, Kaufman, Rains, and Van Zandt Counties until midnight tonight. Additional rainfall totals of around one inch will be possible, with locally higher amounts. Flooding will be possible in low-lying areas, creeks, rivers, and any other flood-prone areas.
