The next several days are going to be delightful compared to what’s coming early next week. Highs Friday, Saturday and into Sunday will be well above normal for this time of the year, so hopefully everyone can get out and enjoy a few more days of shorts and teeshirt weather before Old Man Winter pays us a visit once again. Lows tonight will be seasonal and in the 30s across most of the state, with 40s and 50s across coastal and deep south Texas.
Highs Friday will be pleasant and in the 60s with an abundance of sunshine.
Valentines Day will be even warmer with more sunshine and low to mid-70s expected across much of the state.
Our next cold front begins to push through the northern portion of the state Sunday afternoon and through the remainder of the state Sunday night into Monday. Rain will begin to fall early Monday, then as colder arctic air continues to filter in behind the front Monday afternoon and into the overnight hours, the rain will begin to transition to snow across the panhandle and northern Texas.
At this point, it’s hard to say for certain what will happen with regards to snowfall across north central Texas…and in particular, the DFW metroplex. Those of us that have lived in the DFW area for any length of time already know that forecasting winter weather across this region of the state is about as easy as nailing air to a fence post. Best bet for snowfall will reside across the panhandle and portions of west, west central and northwest Texas Monday night and into Tuesday. Forecast models continue to show different solutions with regard to snowfall, so it will most likely be the weekend before there’s much confidence in who will get snow and exactly how much. As always, we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you up to date with the latest!
