BRIEF

By Seth Cohn / Staff Writer –

After a mild-weathered weekend in North Texas, Denton residents can expect to see a change today, as an arctic front sweeps through with freezing temperatures, heavy rain, wind and the possibility of snow, meteorologists said.

The rain is expected to turn into to a mixture of sleet, freezing rain and snow by early morning, said Joe Harris, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Anticipating the problems inclement weather could pose for the 29 percent of student commuters, university officials canceled classes and closed the UNT-Denton campus today.

Thirty states and more than 100 million people are expected to be affected by the winter storm set to last from Monday evening to late Wednesday.

The storm is predicted to develop in the Texas south central plains, where it will continue northward through the Midwest, up toward Chicago, and across the Great Lakes into New York and the rest of the Northeast, leaving a path of sleet and freezing rain, Harris said.
