Rain, Sleet, Snow All Expected in Dallas Today, Because the World Is Weird

If the National Weather Service is to be believed, Dallas will receive further proof that climate change is a lie created, just like the internet, by former vice president Al Gore.

After an arctic front moves through North Texas overnight Tuesday, rapidly dropping temperatures will be accompanied by freezing rain, sleet and snow, the NWS says. The Winter Weather Advisory officially kicks in at 3 p.m. Wednesday, and will remain in effect until noon on Thursday.

Roads are expected to be coated with as much as a tenth of an inch of ice, half an inch of sleet and an inch of snow just in time for rush hour Wednesday, ensuring that commutes will be a disaster. If last week is any indication, the entire city will shut down.

WFAA weather dude Pete Delkus, drunk with power as ever, says he's still on the fence as to whether he'll cancel school, so do with that information what you will.

By Thursday, things should warn up enough to melt everything off, hopefully bringing an end to the winter weather we'll all be begging for in August.
