Foggy and drizzly conditions will hang around and may cause some slippery situations for early commuters in the Fort Worth area Tuesday.

Most areas of North Central Texas had some combination of fog and drizzle Monday, said National Weather Service meteorologist Jennifer Dunn.

Denton and Decatur, Mineral Wells and areas north and west of those cities reported freezing drizzle, Dunn said.

But with a high of around 37 degrees Monday afternoon, icy roads are not expected in the area.

“We’re hoping to get a break from fog and drizzle this afternoon,” Dunn said. “Unfortunately, we’ll start it all over again tonight with another round of rain and freezing drizzle, possibly sleet, this evening and overnight into Tuesday morning.”

Overnight temperatures could drop into the 20s and ice could become a problem for the Tuesday morning rush hour, Dunn said.

Precipitation likely will end Tuesday and temperatures will rise above freezing later. Any remaining precipitation could refreeze when the mercury again drops into the mid-20s overnight and into Wednesday morning.

Temperatures are warmer after that.

“The rest of the week looks much better,” Dunn said. “We just have to get through the next 48 hours.”

Wednesday’s high will be about 50, Dunn said. Thursday and Friday will be in the 60s. The weekend could warm up to the 70s.
