ABILENE, Texas -

The Texas Department of Transportation has already started preparing for the winter weather headed to the Big Country.

TxDOT crews pre-treated major highways Saturday. Crews will also be treating and monitoring roads around the clock Sunday.

TxDOT is urging everyone to check road conditions before heading out Sunday. Once the storm hits, remember to slow down, increase following distance, use extra caution on bridges and overpasses and turn off cruise control.
