Motorists around Dallas will have to use caution over the next couple of days due to ice.

The stage is set for a bit of ice to make some surfaces slick through Tuesday night around the Dallas area. A few snowflakes may also make an appearance on Tuesday.

A substantial amount of ice is not expected, which should prevent power outages from unfolding.

However, only a glaze of ice is needed for travel--for motorists and those on foot--to become treacherous.

As of Tuesday afternoon, excessive flight delays were reported at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with more than 450 flights delayed or canceled.

The winter weather will depart by midweek, leading to a milder and mostly sunny Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to climb to the 50-degree mark.

Even warmer air will boost temperatures into the 60s for late week and 70s for the weekend. After Tuesday night, overnight low temperatures should stay above the freezing mark.
