Dallas Winter Driving Conditions

Wondering what Dallas’ winter driving conditions are like right now? Check the map below for current Dallas traffic.

Winter driving in Dallas is fairly easy, but it does have its rough spots. Our region is prone to ice storms, which are about as fun as they sound.

Instead of fluffy, crunchy snowfalls turning our beloved Metroplex into a winter wonderland, we usually get about one or two ice storms a year. They sneak in like regular old rainfalls, but the freezing temperatures cause that water to freeze into a sheet of slick ice overnight.

The weight of all of that ice can tear down trees and knock out power lines. It’s not fun to remove from your car in the morning, and it’s even less fun to drive on.

That’s why it’s important to check the driving conditions before starting your commute — that way you know whether or not to stay home.
