By the week’s end, Grayson County residents may get a break from freezing temperatures and icy roads.


No more precipitation is expected in the area through Thursday, said National Weather Service Meteorologist Dennis Cain. There is a slight chance of a small amount of non-freezing rain on Friday.


There will be a "gradual warming trend" this week. Temperatures will still be in the 30s Monday and Tuesday, but will rise to the 40s for the latter part of the week.


Ice will melt throughout the week due to radiation from the sun, even if skies are cloudy, Cain said.


Traffic


While the weather is improving, traffic conditions remain hazardous.


As of Sunday morning, road conditions in the area are still dangerous and travel should be avoided. Commercial traffic has been closed through Sherman, said the Sherman PD dispatch.


An email from the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety advised that, as of midnight Sunday, "Texas DPS will be stopping all commercial vehicles southbound on US69 into Texas."


Highway 75 is slow moving and has abandoned vehicles. Highway 82 is blocked both ways due to accidents and jackknifed semi-trucks.
