A mix of snowflakes, sleet, freezing rain and snowy pellets started falling before dawn, and some commuters could hit some icy spots this morning.
The wintry weather also delayed start times for several schools, and closed two districts: Crandall ISD and Prosper ISD. Liberty Christian School in Argyle also closed for the day.
Just around 5 a.m. Tuesday, several accidents started happening all at once, according to FOX 4's Chip Waggoner. More than one was reported at I-20 at Bowen, in Weatherford at I-20 and Highway 171, and a few on the Dallas North Tollway.
All of the ramps on the High-5 intersection in Dallas closed. More than a hundred wrecks have been reported across North Texas since 4 a.m.:

But what about later? FOX 4 Meteorologist Evan Andrews said most of this wintry mix should pass on to the east by 10 a.m., but until then, roads could remain slick.
