You may not see it, but there's ice everywhere on North Texas roads and highways this morning. Dozens of traffic accidents are wreaking havoc on the morning commute as light fog and drizzle and freezing temperatures combine to coat roads with an almost invisible sheen of ice.

A weekend cold front brought freezing rain and slick roads that contributed to hundreds of crashes over the weekend -- at least four of them fatal in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The conditions are expected to last through the morning commuter rush. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory
for parts of North, Central and East Texas through this morning. Only after midmorning are warmer temperatures expected to arrive, with temperatures climbing higher into the 30s and 40s.
