After an ice storm hit earlier in the week, a blanket of fluffy white snow is now being dropped on North Texas.

The snow began to fall shortly after midnight, with up to three inches expected to cover Dallas/Fort Worth before ending around noon on Friday.

While highways and streets around Cowboys Stadium have been cleared and maintained, side streets and residential neighborhoods have been largely ignored in Arlington.

The snow will pose a hazard on Friday as it will now cover and hide the sheets of ice that still cover the streets of North Texas.

On Friday morning, DFW International Airport officially reported 1.8 inches of snow had hit the ground, but The Dallas Morning News reports that Dallas' Love Field Airport was blanketed in more than four inches of snow.

Love Field was temporarily closed on Friday while a spokesperson for DFW International Airport told The Morning News that 120 flights had already been delayed or canceled.

The bad weather has not canceled many Super Bowl events, but it has caused some to reschedule and/or move facilities.

But, there is an upside to the unusually cold weather.  Many of the events are lowering ticket prices to attend these celebrity parties, such as Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson
