Sunday Overnight: Temperatures will continue to drop to freezing or below freezing this evening. Any snow that melted Sunday afternoon/night will refreeze overnight elevating the concern for slick and icy roads. Snow will move out of East Texas from West to East overnight into the predawn hours.

Monday: Temperatures will warm above freezing after sunrise with ice and snow starting to melt throughout the mid to late morning hours. No further impacts are expected throughout the day Monday. Any moisture still on the ground Tuesday morning could refreeze on Monday night, thus possibly creating slick roads for your Tuesday morning commute.
