NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Even though snow is falling across North Texas this morning there is some good news, the length of the Winter Storm Warning issued for North Texas has been shortened. The Warning, that was originally through Thursday morning, is now set to expire at 8:00 tonight and several counties to the west that were included in the Warning have now been dropped.
The wintry mix is expected to bring two to four inches of snow accumulations, with the most falling northeast of the Metroplex. Ice accumulations of one-tenth to one-quarter inch are expected, with the worst hit areas northeast to Palestine and Canton. Wind chills will be cod enough to cause hypothermia if precautions are not taken.READ MORE: Dallas SWAT Team Responds To Potential Hostage Situation; Police Say Incident Now Over Without Injury
