AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is urging Texans to prepare for an arctic cold front impacting parts of Texas through the weekend. Forecasts indicate the possibility of below freezing temperatures, light snow, sleet and freezing rain across a large portion of the state.
“As the latest cold front moves across much of the state, DPS is advising Texans to prepare for freezing temperatures and winter precipitation. Light snow, freezing rain and sleet in some areas could create hazardous driving conditions,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “Texans should closely monitor the weather conditions in their area and use extra caution if they are driving in affected regions.”

In preparation for possible winter weather, the Texas State Operations Center -- in coordination with Texas Highway Patrol and several state agencies, including the Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas A&M Forest Service, and Texas Military Forces -- will continue to monitor weather conditions and maintain close contact with National Weather Service local forecast offices across the state.

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
•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.
•Watch for downed trees and power lines across roads. If power is out, treat all intersections as four-way stops.
•Make sure your vehicle is properly maintained before any trip -- check fluid and antifreeze levels.
•Don’t drink and drive and buckle up everyone in the vehicle.

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

In addition, here is a list of emergency supplies drivers can keep in their vehicle:
•Blankets/sleeping bags, extra clothing, mittens, 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 to provide traction for tires
•Windshield scraper, tool kit, booster cables, tow rope and shovel
