Snow falls on Big D 2 days before Super Bowl
Question of the Day
DALLAS (AP) - Five inches of snow are on the ground in the Dallas suburb hosting the Super Bowl, just two days before the big game.
The National Weather Service said Arlington, home to $1.3 billion Cowboys Stadium, was among the areas of North Texas that had the largest accumulation Friday morning.
The overnight snowstorm was the latest in a Super Bowl week full of winter weather in a normally temperate climate. An area that usually sees highs in the 50s has had subfreezing temperatures since Tuesday morning.
Although warmer temperatures are on the way, the weather service says snow and ice will still be on the ground Sunday, when Green Bay and Pittsburgh play under the retractable roof at Cowboys Stadium.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
Texas got another blast of winter overnight Friday, with a few inches of snow piling up on icy streets and sidewalks just two days before the Super Bowl.
North Texas hasn’t quite cleaned up from Tuesday’s ice storm and the latest storm threatened to disrupt travel before Sunday’s game between Green Bay and Pittsburgh.
Love Field, home to Southwest Airlines, was closed before dawn Friday and 120 flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
A winter storm warning was in effect for Arlington, where the Steelers and the Packers will play in Cowboys Stadium with the retractable roof closed.
The storm hit as partygoers were out late Thursday and early Friday. Rams running back Steven Jackson tweeted: “All this snow.. This can’t be Dallas.”
