DALLAS -

Tens of thousands of North Texans enjoyed the first "white Christmas" since the 1970s.

The National Weather Service says one to 3 inches of snow will fall from the Dallas-Tarrant County line, but only a trace will be seen farther south.

North of Denton and Collin Counties, three to six inches of snow could fall before the storm blows through by nightfall.

At 3:25 p.m., 3 inches of snow were recorded in Jacksboro.

But once the snowfall stops after sundown, the most serious weather event will happen: the temperatures will plunge.

As the storm system moves from the west to the east, colder temperatures plus gusty winds up to 40 miles per hour may dry some of the precipitation, but the roads could remain very hazardous because whatever snow or rain remains will freeze.

TxDOT has sanding crews on standby in Dallas, and has already begun applying liquid magnesium chloride to roads in Denton County. That liquid helps prevent ice from forming.

Expect to see lows in the mid to upper 20s overnight, then clear skies and cold temperatures in the 30s on Wednesday.
