A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for snow and freezing drizzle between 6am Friday morning through 6pm Saturday.  This includes Dallas, Ft. Worth, Bonham, Paris, Sherman/Dennison, Greenville, McKinney, Denton, Decatur, Graham, Breckenridge, Mineral Wells, Weatherford, Stephenville and Cleburne.  Snow is anticipated to fall within the advisory area tomorrow with accumulations between 2 to 4 inches possible mainly across the western and northern portions of the advisory area.  Some areas could get some thunder with enhanced snowfall as a result of convective banding.  The track of the upper level disturbance bringing us this weather will have an impact on both snow locations and totals, so adjustments to the Advisory area may be necessary tomorrow.  We’re all very familiar with that from Wednesday’s setup.  This snow, unlike what fell on Wednesday, will be lighter and not as wet and heavy due to the colder air aloft and at the surface.  As this snow will be falling primarily during the daytime…after everyone is at work and/or school…it could mean some slick roads for the commute home in the afternoon.  Plan accordingly!
