The snow across north Texas is tapering off, but we’re not out of the woods just yet. Additional winter precipitation is forecasted to fall overnight and into tomorrow morning mainly in the form of light snow across north Texas and freezing drizzle for areas mainly south of the DFW metro this evening. Mid-level winds from the south are advecting warmer air up over the arctic air at the surface. This will cause further development of freezing drizzle which will work its way from south to north overnight and into tomorrow morning for areas that are at or below freezing. Additional snow is expected across the northern Texas panhandle as well. Winter just won’t quit! The only significant update to the previous Winter Weather Advisories was to upgrade Cooke, Denton, Grayson and Wise counties north of the DFW metroplex to a Winter Storm Warning in effect through 6pm tomorrow. 6 to 8 inches of snow is possible for some folks within these counties, then to top that off, freezing drizzle overnight and early tomorrow will just add to the fun.
Here’s a look at current radar. Blue is light snow, pink is freezing drizzle/sleet and green is rain. Most of the heavy precip is tapering off, but we’re continuing to see light snow across north Texas with freezing drizzle beginning to develop across north Texas, west central Texas and the Hill Country region. Wherever temps are in the 20s or lower, the precip should be all snow. Areas close to freezing should be seeing light freezing rain. Roads will be very slick tonight across north Texas, between Dallas and Waco, through the northern Hill Country, out towards San Angelo, Midland/Odessa and into west Texas as well….basically anywhere that freezing drizzle falls overnight. If you don’t have to be out and about, stay in and avoid the possibility of getting in an accident or stranded out there. We will continue to keep an eye on things this evening and throughout the nighttime hours and will provide updates as needed.
