The National Weather Service forecasts a strong cold front making its way through North Texas during the afternoon of Dec. 9. Temperatures are expected to drop approximately 10 degrees within minutes of the cold front’s passage. Temperatures will continue to drop throughout the evening and the morning of Dec. 10, bringing with it up to an inch of rain.
The weather will create a chance of snowfall, but little to no snow accumulation is expected for most areas.
Officials with the cities of Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake confirmed public works teams are on standby with sand trucks should main bridges or roads ice.
Southlake Emergency Manager Amanda Meneses said the Texas Department of Transportation is pretreating bridges and overpasses on main thoroughfares and highways.
No other pretreatment methods are in place at this time. The National Weather Service expects little to no impact on daily traffic, but city officials will continue to monitor road conditions.
“If action is needed, we have a plan in place,” Colleyville Community Relations Manager Erin Spicer said in an email.
