Due to a blast of Arctic air, temperatures are expected to dip to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and North Texans can expect a wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow that is predicted to freeze the night of March 11.
"Temperatures on Friday will only be in the 30s with a mixture of rain, sleet and snow in the forecast, followed by a freeze-up Friday night," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

In DFW, the rain is expected to turn to sleet, then snow with accumulations of one-tenth of an inch of sleet and snow. Expected weather impacts include icy spots on bridges and overpasses.
Because the days are getting longer and the sun is higher in the sky, the cold weather is not expected to stick around long, and temperatures are predicted to increase by the weekend, according to the AccuWeather winter weather website article.
