The last few days, temperatures have been below freezing, but with little to no rain, driving conditions have not been an issue. However, officials say to prepare for sleet and snow tonight.

Tonight temperatures will be around 20 degrees, and the sleet and snow could cause some hazardous road conditions tomorrow. Sr. Cpl. Charlie Morgan, with the Texas Highway Patrol says, "ice and snow does not cause traffic crashes. It's the way people drive on the ice and snow." He says to drive slowly, and keep a blanket and warm clothes in the car in case of a crash. If possible just stay home and avoid driving all together.

Officials say roads could still be icy on Saturday, or until the temperatures rise.
