Texas agencies mobilize ahead of wintry weather


Associated Press

DALLAS — State agencies are mobilizing to assist motorists and others as another frigid cold front is expected to bring snow and ice to parts of Texas.

The Texas Department of Transportation and the Department of Public Safety will monitor roadways as forecasts call for a chance of snow or freezing rain for the Houston area and extending into Southeast Texas. There's a 20 percent chance of a wintry mix for Central Texas while flurries are possible for the Panhandle.

School districts in the Houston area have already canceled classes for Tuesday.

High temperatures Tuesday are expected to be in the mid to upper 30s for much of Texas. The Panhandle may not get out of the 20s.

Forecasts call for a chance of rain in South Texas with temps in the upper 40s.
