Posted: Updated:
TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) -

The winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service for Texarkana, Texas was dropped early Wednesday morning, the potential for freezing rain and icy roads diminished overnight.

The city of Texarkana, Texas prepared for the potential of winter weather by loading up sand trucks and placing emergency officials and road crews on alert in case of ice accumulation on bridges and overpasses. It appears now that those resources will not be needed, although there could still be some winter mix and very light freezing rain. If that happens, it's expected to be very isolated.

Residents are encouraged to monitor local weather reports, sign up for Code Red weather alerts through the city website, and stay informed on road conditions and closures.
