Winter weather is expected to hit Collin County region this weekend, beginning with freezing drizzle Saturday morning and continuing with as much as 6 inches of snow late Sunday into Monday.
Temperatures are forecast to fall to the single digits, with gusty winds that will likely make it feel even colder.
Patchy freezing drizzle is first expected to develop in the early morning hours of Saturday, according to the weather.gov service. With temperatures expected to hover around the 20s, the drizzle could freeze soon after it hits surfaces like roadways and bridges.
A winter storm watch from the weather service warns heavy snow and blowing snow will be possible, and there could be “near blizzard conditions”.
