Winter Weather Turns Deadly in North Texas

Posted on 2/11/2014 by with 0 comments

A cold front across Dallas-Fort Worth brought freezing rain and sleet to the region, and headaches for motorists.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all of North Central Texas through 6 p.m. Tuesday. By mid-morning on Tuesday, freezing drizzle will morph into a winter mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and even snow for counties north of Interstate 20.

A number of schools were planning to open late on Tuesday morning because of the potential for dangerous driving; several — including Northwest ISD and Denton ISD — announced they would be closed.

There was a fatal accident involving a Dallas firefighter who fell from an icy overpass along Walton Walker Boulevard in Southwest Dallas around 8:30 p.m. Traffic near the intersection of Walton Walker and Interstate 20 was at a standstill.
