Saturday evening the National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory that covers Grayson County.


Temperatures will stay right around freezing all day, with a low of 32 degrees and a high of 33 degrees, said meteorologist Jason Dunn of the National Weather Service’s Fort Worth office.


Light rain and freezing rain will begin in the morning, said meteorologist Steve Fano, also of the National Weather Service’s Fort Worth office. The morning precipitation will minimally affect travel on roads, Fano said.


In the late afternoon and early evening, precipitation will turn into sleet and snow that will stick to the ground. Surfaces most affected will be grassy areas and roads, Dunn said. As a result, residents should avoid driving unless it is absolutely necessary. The precipitation is expected to end in the evening just after dark.


The Winter Weather Advisory will most likely be lifted at 9 p.m., Fano said.


Winds on Sunday will be around 10 and 15 miles per hour, Dunn said, which is not as windy as the area has experienced recently.


There is a chance of rain on Tuesday. There may be more rain or snow Thursday and Friday. However Dunn said it is too early to predict for sure.
