The weather will remain mostly cold and cloudy throughout the week with a few chances of precipitation.


Tuesday will be cloudy with a 70 percent chance of rain, said meteorologist Jesse Moore of the National Weather Service’s Fort Worth office. Temperatures will be around 33 degrees in the morning, and will warm up to 41 degrees by the afternoon. Another cold front is expected for Tuesday night, when temperatures will drop into the lower 20s.


Wednesday will be cloudy and temperatures will remain in the 20s, Moore said. There is no precipitation expected.


Thursday there is a chance of snow in the afternoon. The low will be 15 degrees and the high will be in the mid-20s, Moore said.


Friday temperatures will remain in the mid-30s and skies will be cloudy during the day. At night, there is a 20 percent chance of rain that will possibly be freezing rain.


Residents can expect Saturday to be cloudy and cold, with freezing rain occurring in the morning. Temperatures in the first part of the day will remain in the 30s. A cold front is expected to come in during the afternoon, and snow may come at night, Moore said.


Weather makes roads treacherous


Accidents due to icy roads keep occurring — including two incidents Sunday in which Sherman Police Department vehicles were damaged.


Several officers responded to a car accident at 8:45 p.m. Sunday on northbound U.S. Highway 75 near the Shepherd Road overpass, said Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton. At one point, a car slid on the icy road and struck a Chevrolet Tahoe owned by the Sherman PD. Nobody was in the car at the time of the collision and there were no injuries.


About 20 minutes after the Tahoe was struck, another car slid into the rear of a Sherman PD Crown Victoria. Again, the car was unoccupied when it was struck and nobody was injured.


The Tahoe sustained the worst damage of the two incidents, and Hampton said he speculates that it may be totaled. The Crown Victoria’s bumper received a large dent, Hampton said.
