Icy weather possible late Sunday into Monday

Weather GFXA special weather statement issued early Friday morning by the National Weather Service warns of the possibility of freezing rain and sleet late Sunday through Monday evening in Denton County.

An upper level storm system is expected to move across North Texas, bringing colder temperatures and a 50 percent chance of wintry precipitation.

Rainfall is expected to change from rain to freezing rain Sunday evening as temperatures begin to drop to an overnight low of 29 degrees. The chance of wintry precipitation late Sunday is 40 percent.

Monday’s high is expected to top out at 33 degrees with a 50 percent chance of wintry precipitation.

Locations along and northwest of a line from Comanche to Dallas to Bonham are most likely to see subfreezing temperatures while precipitation is falling, according to the National Weather Service.

An accumulation of ice and sleet could cause both travel and power problems as early as Monday morning.

Early predictions from several forecast services call from between a tenth of an inch to a quarter inch of icy accumulations.

However, forecasters are continuing to monitor the system. Any variations to temperatures and precipitation amounts could change the forecast.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the weekend.
