Potential for a light dusting of snow continues to remain in the forecast for areas in north central Texas on Monday.  There is still a lot of uncertainty, and local forecasters are not completely ready to say for certain it will happen, but it’s worth saying THERE IS A CHANCE!  –> insert happy dance <–

For several days now, the European forecast model has been consistently showing at least some form of snow or mix in our area after passage of the front.  The forecast graphic below should be very familiar by now since it’s really not changed very much.  The sleet/freezing line is still traversing north central Texas.  Precip in the panhandle would be in the form of snow since it is quite far behind the freezing line.  For north Texas, the precip would most likely be a wintry mix and/or light snow depending upon your proximity to the freezing line…if this forecast pans out.

am – Noon on Monday 

 

The GFS has been rather stingy with any form of precipitation over north central Texas up until the past day or so; however,  it really began catching up today and is beginning to follow the Euro’s trend with precipitation locations and timing.  The GFS graphic from last night is specifically a snowfall graphic, unlike the one above which simply depicts precipitation with no discrimination as to what type.  That purple blotch right there may not be a very big blotch on the map, but it’s a blotch of HOPE for all of those who have been wanting to see some fluffy white stuff!  I do have to let you know that today’s GFS snowfall graphic is not showing this same blotch on the map…but don’t lose all hope as these things tend to flip flop back and forth with all forecast models.

am until Noon 

Last but not least, I’ve included the updated Graphicast published this morning by the National Weather Service office in Ft. Worth.  While they are not even close to being 100% confident that we will get snow up here, they felt there was enough of a chance to mention it.
