Overall the roads fared well, but there were some slushy and icy spots, and several accident were reported.

The snow tapered off late Saturday morning and temperatures were expected to warm up to around 43 degrees in the afternoon. The forecast low Saturday night is 30 degrees, and warmer temperatures are expected to return Sunday. The forecast high on Sunday is 59 in Denton, followed by a high of 64 on Monday and 69 on Wednesday.
