Falling temperatures, gusts of wind, and sprinkles of freezing rain are in the forecast for Dallas until Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

As a cold front sweeps through north Texas, temperatures will fall throughout as Dallas and the region experience temperatures in the 30s and 40s.

The wind gusts will make it feel even colder, the weather service said.

There is a 20% chance of scattered showers, but DFW is not expected to experience severe thunderstorms.

Sunday night, Dallas should see mostly cloudy weather, with temperatures reaching as low as 31 degrees.

The weather service Sunday issued a winter storm watch, which is in effect for north and central Texas.

The winter storm watch is in effect from 12 p.m. Monday to 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

There is a strong possibility of significant ice buildup due to falling temperatures and freezing rain.

People traveling on the road should look out for icy conditions, especially over bridges and elevated surfaces. Sleet is also a possibility.

Monday, DFW will likely see patches of freezing drizzle and light freezing rain, along with some icy buildup on elevated surfaces.

Monday night heading into Tuesday and throughout Tuesday gives DFW a higher chance of experiencing higher amounts of freezing rain.

Temperatures will remain below freezing most of the day, and icy roads, bridges, and overpasses are possible.

North Texans should plan accordingly, as travel could be tricky in places on Tuesday.

Tuesday night heading into Wednesday, DFW will still be experiencing some freezing rain or drizzle, temperatures will hover around or below freezing, and icy conditions are likely to be a possibility.

On Wednesday, plan to bring a jacket as the day will stay cold. However, temperatures will rise above freezing.

Weather forecasts are subject to change at a moment’s notice, and the intensity of precipitation in any area will play a role in how much ice the metroplex sees.
