The National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting that precipitation will transition to freezing rain, sleet, and snow starting Wednesday evening, and temperatures will drop below freezing. Coppell Public Works crews plan to begin spreading ice melt on roadways and bridges as the freezing precipitation nears.
Despite the efforts of Coppell crews and state agencies, icy conditions on roadways are expected to remain – especially on residential streets, alleyways, bridges, and overpasses – as temperatures are projected to stay below freezing for the next few days. The NWS has advised that roads will likely be treacherous both Thursday and Friday, with relief coming on Saturday as temperatures rise above freezing. If you must travel, please use appropriate caution when driving.
The City of Coppell is committed to keeping the community safe and informed. City staff will continue to monitor the weather over the next few days and provide updates as appropriate.
Additionally, the City of Coppell's Emergency Management division recommends all residents utilize three different methods of emergency notification, such as text or email alerts from NotifyCoppell, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) All-Hazards Radio, and a smartphone application.
