With the threat of winter weather moving back into the region, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of North Texas. The advisory is in effect from 6 a.m. Sunday morning and will last through 9 p.m. Sunday night.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that road conditions could become hazardous to drive on, so extra precaution is required when traveling.
Despite a two-day delay, Texas A&M University-Commerce will get its shot at payback for its only loss of the season when it takes on Northwood Wednesday at The Field House tonight (Dec. 11) at 7 PM. The Knights snapped the Lions' season-opening, eight-game win streak on Dec. 3 with a narrow 75-73 win in Cedar Hill. Wednesday's rematch was originally scheduled for Monday in Commerce, but was postponed due to the recent winter weather in North Texas.
Despite successful repairs in some areas, hundreds of Northeast Texas residents remain without power following Friday's ice storm.
Much of the region - including Commerce, Sulphur Springs, Paris and Bonham - is served by Oncor Electric Delivery. More than 2,500 Oncor employees and contractors have arrived in Texas to to enact emergency repairs.
"We have our employees and outside utilities and contractors positioned across our service territory, prepared to respond as soon as possible," said Oncor chief operating officer Jim Greer.
While the bulk of this weekend's ice storm has already impacted the region, sub-freezing temperatures and a chance for wintry precipitation will continue through Sunday.
Friday night, a break in cloud cover should result in very cold overnight low temperatures, with thermometer readings expected in the mid-teens. Winds out of the north around 10-15 mph, gusting to 20, could result in wind-chill values in the single digits to low teens.
Temperatures slightly warmer than previously forecast have resulted in widespread rainfall, rather than sleet, throughout much of Northeast Texas. However, freezing rain remains possible this morning.
Warning statements for most Northeast Texas counties have been downgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory. Collin, Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Hopkins, Hunt, Kaufman, Lamar, Rains, Rockwall, Van Zandt, Wood and other counties in Northeast Texas are under a Winter Weather Advisory. Red River and Bowie Counties remain under a Winter Storm Warning.
