AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is encouraging Texans to prepare for a strong cold front expected to impact parts of Texas Thursday through Saturday morning. Forecasts indicate the possibility of sleet and snow accumulation, including as much as two inches in portions of Texas.

“DPS is asking drivers to use extra caution on Texas roadways as an arctic front moves into areas of the state. Drivers may encounter freezing rain, sleet or snow is some areas, which could create extremely dangerous driving conditions,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “As always, Texans should continue to monitor the changing weather conditions in their area and prepare for any expected hazards.”

In preparation for this winter storm, the State Operations Center will activate to Level III (increased readiness conditions) on Thursday evening to monitor and coordinate this weather event. Several state agencies, including Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Military Forces, are standing by to assist communities before, during and after this weather event as needed.

DPS offers the following tips for staying safe during this weather event:
•Avoid unnecessary travel if possible, monitor local weather broadcasts, and follow up-to-the-minute weather conditions at http://www.weather.gov/.
•Remember that ice forms first on bridges, overpasses and shady areas.
•On icy roads, drive slowly, increase distance needed for stopping, and avoid using cruise control.
•Make sure your vehicle is properly maintained before any trip -- check fluid and antifreeze levels.
•Buckle up everyone in the vehicle -- it’s the law.

For more information on road conditions statewide, check www.drivetexas.org or call 800-452-9292.

In addition, here is a list of emergency supplies drivers can keep in their vehicle:
•Blankets/sleeping bags and extra clothing, mittens and hat
•Cell phone, radio, flashlight, extra batteries
•First-aid kit and pocket knife
•High-calorie, nonperishable food, bottled water
•Sack of sand or cat litter for de-icing roadway
•Windshield scraper, tool kit, booster cables, tow rope and shovel
