In the wake of one of the worst ice storms in recent years to hit the South Central states, temperatures plunged Friday night around the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.

Temperatures were cold enough to make any areas that were wet and slushy from the storm freeze solid, making the aftermath of the storm that much worse.

Many roads and sidewalks will be dangerous for travel, as the ice will be very difficult to remove, due to sub-freezing temperatures.

Temperatures will only be above freezing for a handful of hours Sunday and Monday afternoon adding to the hardship for those without a source of heat for their homes.
