More snow arrives in Dallas area before Super Bowl


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.
