EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Another Arctic cold front will blast through East Texas on Saturday night, ushering in another batch of frigid temperatures to the Piney Woods of East Texas this weekend.

As the cold air settles in, we will see moisture override that cold air at the surface.  This will lead to wintry precipitation taking shape across the Lone Star state as we head into next week.

Initially, the wintry mix will take place across North Central, North, and Northeast Texas, where temperatures will be at or below the freezing mark on Sunday night and Monday morning.

We, on the other hand, will start off with a cold rain during that same time-frame.  However, as we progress through the day on Monday, we are expecting our surface temperatures to fall down to the freezing mark late in the day.  If moisture is prevalent at the same time we get to freezing, we will see our precipitation transition to a freezing rain and sleet mixture.

This could lead to some icy patches on bridges and overpasses as we head into Tuesday morning.

It should be noted that the slightest change in our surface temperatures and moisture content can greatly alter our precipitation type and amounts.
