MISD Multi-cultural Festival 2014.

Linda Wilkie, sales and marketing coordinator at Mansfield ISD, reported today that the school's third annual multi-cultural festival has been canceled due to the winter weather.

"Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but safety is our main concern," she said in an email.

According to earlier correspondence from superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas, the district planned on holding the event despite the snow, with residents cautioned to plan accordingly; however as poor conditions heightened, the district employed normal bad-weather cancelation processes to notify residents of the changes.

According to WFAA, an additional 1-2 inches are expected to accumulate in the area. A winter storm warning is in effect until Saturday morning.

As of 6:30 p.m. on WFAA:

A band of heavier snow will continue along and 30 miles either side of an Celina and Trenton line through 830 PM CST. An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow can be expected across this area where a Winter Storm Warning is in effect overnight and through Saturday morning. North of a Dallas-Fort Worth...Sulphur Springs line expect occasional snow showers with amounts ranging from a trace up to an additional half inch with any isolated heavier snow showers. Pockets of freezing rain or sleet are possible as well. Elsewhere across southern and eastern sections of North Texas... patchy freezing drizzle will continue to develop through mid evening. Elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses may become slick as temperatures fall below freezing after nightfall. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect overnight and through Saturday morning. If you do not have to be traveling on the roads...stay indoors as residual slush from previous snowfall and freezing drizzle will make travel more hazardous as we move into the nighttime hours.
