Dallas has a subtropical climate.  This means that the winters are mild, the summers are hot and the spring and autumn are very, very wet.  On very rare occasions, it will snow in Dallas during the winter, but it generally will not lie as it is very rare to have a day where the temperatures do not go above freezing.
