This morning, the 32° freezing line approaches our far northwest counties. This will bring a changeover from rain to freezing rain. This looks to increase overnight and early Thursday morning. That freezing line comes as far southeast into Smith county. By morning, our northwest counties could see ice accumulation and travel impacts.

During the day Thursday, temperatures slowly climb above freezing in our northwest counties. More rain increasing by the afternoon and evening.

The ice accumulation by Futurecast may be a tad high, but a glaze to one-tenth of an inch is possible–either way, this can cause problems.
