Winter Weather Advisory for Northern D/FW Metroplex

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for areas located to the north and northeast of the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. This advisory runs from 12 PM Christmas through 9 PM Christmas. Locations within this advisory can expect between 1 and 3 inches of snow. Travel impacts are likely with elevated surfaces freezing over and very strong gusty winds causing damage to power lines and tree limbs. It would be advisable to get travel out of the way by early Christmas afternoon before things begin to go downhill. Any southward shift in the storm track will result in heavier snow in the D/FW Metroplex. As of right now, I expect snow accumulations to remain at or below 1 inch in the metroplex. Even with that light amount of snow, some travel impacts will be possible in the metroplex Christmas evening.

Counties Included: MONTAGUE, COOKE, GRAYSON, FANNIN, LAMAR, DENTON, COLLIN, HUNT, DELTA, HOPKINS

… Winter Weather Advisory in effect from noon to 9 PM CST
Tuesday…

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for snow… which is in effect from noon to 9 PM CST
Tuesday.

* Timing… Christmas afternoon through mid evening.

* Main impact… snowfall accumulations between 1 and 3 inches.

* Other impacts… gusty northwest winds 25 to 35 mph will result
in areas of blowing snow by evening which may result in
visibility restrictions across the advisory area. Elevated
surface such as power lines… trees… bridges and overpasses
will be the first to ice over… even if snow melts.

* Precautionary/preparedness actions… be prepared for icy spots
on area roads and highways by Christmas evening. Check on-line
sites for Road conditions if you must travel. Wear several
layers of clothing when venturing out due to the gusty winds.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of winter
precipitation may cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and plan on some travel delays.
