The cities of Keller, Roanoke and Fort Worth are prepared as the National Weather Service forecasts dropping temperatures and increasing chances of rain during the evening of Dec. 9 through the next morning.

A rain/snow mix will be likely for parts of North Texas, including the Dallas-Fort Worth region, according to the National Weather Service. Most local residents will not see snow accumulate due to warm ground temperatures, but some isolated areas may experience one to three inches of snow.

The effect on travel should be minimal, but issues may occur in areas that see higher amounts of rain or snow, according to the forecast.

Keller staff has brine prepared to treat bridges and roadways if needed, Keller Public Information Officer Rachel Reynolds said in an email.

Work crews are pretreating overpasses and bridges in Denton County, according to the Texas Department of Transportation Dallas District’s social media.

Roanoke is communicating with the Denton County Office of Emergency Management to prepare, said Morgan Roundy, Roanoke marketing and media relations coordinator, in an email. TxDOT will be treating major thoroughfares, including SH 114, US 377, SH 170 and Byron Nelson Boulevard.

City personnel and equipment will be available to respond should any issues arise, Roundy said in her email.

Fort Worth officials will be monitoring National Weather Service forecasts for updates, but the effects of wintry conditions will likely remain minimal as temperatures are expected to remain above freezing, Fort Worth Communications Officer Janice Thompson-Burgess said in an email.

The city’s cold weather shelter operations, along with sand trucks, will be ready if needed, Thompson-Burgess said. Residents should monitor weather alerts and exercise caution when on the road.
