No precipitation is expected for Monday, said meteorologist Dennis Cain of the National Weather Service’s Fort Worth office. The day will be cold and cloudy, with a high of 38 degrees and a low of 33 degrees.


There is a 50 percent chance of rain for Tuesday, Cain said. However temperatures will stay above freezing.


No more precipitation is expected in the week until Friday, when there is a 40 percent chance of a wintry mix that could include freezing rain, sleet and snow.


Residents should avoid driving if possible when frozen precipitation is sticking to the roads. Local highway patrol troopers responded to about eight weather-related car accidents by mid-afternoon Sunday, said a Department of Public Safety representative.
