US 287 between Dumas and Amarillo remains closed, and Texas Department of Public Safety says it could be closed for several hours.

For those who are stuck, or may know someone stuck in traffic, DPS has released the following tips:

-Keep your car on for 15 minutes, then turn it off for 45 minutes. This keeps your vehicle warm and conserves fuel.

-Do not leave your vehicle. The temperatures will dip as the evening continues, and the best way to stay safe is to stay in the warmth.

Tow units are having trouble clearing the road due to the ice and snow. We'll continue with updates on road closures throughout the night.
