Arlington residents will have to wait a bit longer for spring weather conditions to stick around the city.

According to the National Weather Service, more winter weather is being forecasted for the Arlington area. Precipitation is expected to begin Wednesday evening and run through Thursday morning.

City of Arlington and TxDOT crews are out treating roads, overpasses and bridges in the DFW area to make them more passable.

Travel is being discouraged, and freezing precipitation is predicted for this event. If you must travel, drivers are urged to follow these precautions:

  • Reduce speed. Speed limits are based on normal road conditions, not winter road conditions. Do not use cruise control.
  • Maintain at least three times the normal following distance on snow or ice.
  • Watch carefully for personnel and equipment treating roadways, and stay at least 200 feet back from road crews.
  • Use extra caution on bridges, ramps, overpasses and shaded areas as they tend to freeze first.
  • Carry extra warm coats, gloves and boots in case you get stranded.
  • If you start to slide, ease off the gas pedal or brakes. Steer into the direction of the skid until you feel you have regained traction, and then straighten your vehicle.

Please monitor the City of Arlington website, Facebook or Twitter pages for updates.
