Light sleet, freezing rain passes through DFW, causing slick roads

A round of sleet and freezing rain passed through North Texas mid-morning Sunday, causing slick roads in some locations, especially on bridges and overpasses.

But temperatures warmed up by the afternoon, melting away much of the ice.

Roads across North Texas, including southern Dallas County, Arlington, Fort Worth and North Richland Hills, were reportedly icy after the storm.

A major accident was reported on westbound Interstate 20 at Texas 360 in Arlington due to possibly icy conditions, police tweeted.

MedStar ambulance service responded to 15 accidents between 9:45 a.m. and noon, according to spokesman Matt Zavadsky.

While the roads remained slick, the batch of sleet cleared through the area by the early afternoon. Temperatures were expected to warm up and climb above freezing.

Tonight and tomorrow

Dry tonight, but staying cold. Temps below freezing in the 20s for most of North Texas. With sunshine tomorrow we'll have afternoon temps in the low 50s. Cool, but much better than the last couple of days.
