UPDATED: Winter Weather Hits Southlake

UPDATE: 2/6/14 12:55 p.m.- All Parks and Recreation programs are canceled today due to inclement weather.

+++++

A Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 2 p.m. this afternoon. Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for at least the next twenty-four hours resulting in a continued presence of ice on sections of the roadway throughout the day and during the afternoon commute.The Public Works department continues to sand local roadways and will continue to do so until it is no longer needed.

Since early this morning the Southlake Police Department has worked several motor vehicle accidents due to the weather conditions. In the City of Southlake we are witnessing minor accumulations of snow, however; hidden beneath the snow, in certain areas, is a layer of ice that is creating hazardous driving conditions on our local roadways. Motorists are encouraged to slow down and to allow plenty of time to get to their destination. If at all possible please stay off the roadways.

The City of Southlake will be monitoring these conditions throughout the day. For the latest updates, visit www.CityofSouthlake.com and www.MySouthlakeNews.com, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages and the  Southlake DPS Facebook.
