NOCONA (CBSDFW.COM) - The worst of Monday’s weather seems to be in Montague County. Several school districts there were forced to delay their starts or shut down completely. Ice remains on the ground in Nocona, far north of the Metroplex, causing several drivers to spin out.

The treacherous roads and winter weather was enough for 11 area school districts, including the Nocona Independent School District, to change their plans from a delayed start to canceled classes. Only the Gold-Burg Independent School District stayed open, but buses had to run two hours later than normal.

Main roads have been mostly driveable, but patches of thin ice are scattered around the area. “Actually, the roads were okay when I came in at around 7:00 a.m. and between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. it got pretty bad,” said Nocona High School cafeteria worker Tonya Sandoval. “Cars were going slower. There were already snow trucks out on the roads and it had gotten colder. The winds picked up quite a bit.”

And another punch of icy weather could be on the way, so schools are expected to be impacted again on Tuesday morning.
