Snow Falls Across North Texas This Morning; Heaviest Amounts South Of Dallas

Feb 25, 2015

Snow has been falling across Dallas-Fort Worth through the morning, and a winter weather advisory remains in effect for North Texas until noon Wednesday. 

Up to one inch of snow is likely across the area. The heaviest snow is expected to fall southeast of Dallas-Fort Worth, the National Weather Service says. The greatest threat has shifted to Hill, Navarro, Kaufman, Van Zandt and Henderson counties, the weather service says. Some areas could see up to five inches.

Western Navarro County has seen more than 3.5 inches, the weather service says. 

In Dallas, though, the flakes weren't accumulating on roads. 

Temperatures will range from 31 to 34 degrees while the snow falls this morning, the weather service says. Temperatures will warm up into the low 40s later this afternoon.

Most schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area resumed classes Wednesday after two days off due to the wintry weather.

About 90 flights have been canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport amid sleet and light snow from the second winter storm system this week. DFW airport maintenance crews on Wednesday treated runways, taxiways and all roadways in anticipation of several inches of snow.

Ice storms earlier this week canceled school, left highways slick and led to more than 1,000 flights canceled at DFW airport.

School minibus overturns, hurting 3

Two students and an adult have been slightly hurt when a school minibus overturned on a snowy, icy North Texas road.

Grand Prairie police say the Mansfield Independent School District bus ended up on its side Wednesday morning.

Officer Lyle Gensler says road conditions were a factor in the single-vehicle accident. He says the driver, another adult and two elementary-age students were on board. All wore seat belts.

Ambulances transported the two children and one adult to a hospital, to be checked for minor injuries. Gensler had no information on whether the driver was among those hurt.

The Mansfield ISD says the wreck involved two school employees. Details weren't immediately released on a destination.
