Heat Advisory for Thursday & Friday in North Texas

I hope you enjoyed the weather last week because the heat is back! A heat advisory has been issued for Thursday and Friday across North Texas. A heat advisory is issued in North Texas when low temperatures will remain at or above 78 degrees and heat index values exceed 105 degrees. The combination of high dewpoint values leading to high humidity along with hot overnight temperatures will cause dangerous heat conditions. Please take the time to check on your elderly neighbors to make sure they’re good to go!

Freezing Rain/Winter Weather Advisories Issued for Morning Commute

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather and Freezing Rain advisories for areas north and west of the D/FW Metroplex along with parts of Northwest Texas and the Big Country. These advisories are in effect now through mid to late morning on Monday. Drizzle and light rain will likely cause areas of light icing overnight as temperatures drop to or below freezing. Hopefully temperatures will remain just warm enough to prevent widespread ice issues on roadways along with only very light ice accumulations expected. However, I do anticipate some icy bridges and overpasses for the morning commute for the northern D/FW Metroplex. Sweetwater, Abilene, Vernon, Wichita Falls, Mineral Wells, Denton, and McKinney are a few towns included. Temperatures will rise above freezing by late morning ending the threat for freezing rain.

Winter Weather Advisories issued for North Central Texas

The National Weather Service office in Ft. Worth has issued Winter Weather Advisories for the following counties in north Central Texas.  Montague, Cook, Grayson, Fannin, Lamar, Young, Jack, Wise, Denton, Collin, Hunt, Delta and Hopkins in effect from 9am to 6pm this evening.  Light snow is expected to fall across the area today with accumulations between 1/2 and 1 inch expected.  Areas of snow are already showing up on radar just west of Denton, with confirmation of flurries in that area.  This area of light snow is expected to expand during the morning hours, with some heavier snow banding setting up across the area…although where that will set up is hard to determine at this time.  Travel impacts are expected to be similar to yesterday wherever the heavier snow bands set up…and where snow from yesterday remains on the roadways.  Check local media or www.drivetexas.org/full for the latest on area road conditions.
