* Snow is falling from the northeastern Texas Panhandle near Canadian southwest through Amarillo south into the South Plains. Most snow in this area is light with drier air starting to kick in and help end precipitation.

* Snow is now falling across much of Northwest Texas including Childress, Vernon, Quanah, and Wichita Falls. We’re expecting 1 to 3 inches of snow in Northwest Texas tonight. Snow-covered and slick roads are a good bet tonight so drive safely.

* Light freezing rain mixed with sleet at times is falling across the Big Country. Precipitation is light at this time but there may be a layer of thin ice that develops. Heavier precipitation in the form of sleet and snow is expected later tonight with up to 1-2 inches of sleet/snow possible.

* The freezing line has entered the northwestern portion of the D/FW Metroplex roughly running from Sherman to Little Elm southwest to Mineral Wells. The core cities in D/FW remain just above freezing but will fall to or below 32 degrees by 6 PM. Light rain/freezing rain is falling and will continue to do so this evening. Once temperatures fall below freezing we’ll likely start seeing a few icy spots on bridges and overpasses. Main roads will remain just wet until we get a heavier area of sleet that develops tonight. Sleet will eventually change over to light snow. Localized sleet accumulations of half an inch to one inch will be possible with one to two inches of snow also possible tonight.

* All of Central Texas is above freezing at 4:30 PM with isolated showers and even a thunderstorm. No winter weather is expected before 10 PM this evening.

* Northeast Texas has widespread rain with a few thunderstorms moving northeast. Temperatures are in the 30s to low 40s and will continue to drop this evening. We’ll see changeover to freezing rain/sleet as temperatures fall below freezing this evening eventually ending as light snow early Thursday Morning.

* All of East Texas is well above freezing at 4:30 PM. A Winter Weather Advisory takes effect late tonight with some icy bridges possible as temperatures fall to near freezing.
