Snowfall totals from across the region this morning. All the snow has melted away by now however. Our area received between 0.3 and 0.5 inches of snowfall, while areas west of I-35, north of I-20 received up to 3 inches! Temperatures today have already reached their highs (46 degrees) and will continue to drop. Clouds should begin to clear out in the later afternoon hours, allowing temps to drop to 31 degrees overnight. Expect windy conditions for the remainder of the day. A freeze warning remains in effect overnight tonight as surface air temps are expected to drop below freezing for the first time this season.
Snowfall is still expected for Friday mid-morning through evening, with some snowfall possible as early as Thursday night. Accumulations will be low for our area with only a trace of snow forecast. Low temps on Friday may reach 25 degrees, allowing snow to stick around for a little bit.
…Snow expected Friday for much of North Texas…
A strong upper level storm system will move across North Texas on
Friday. With a cold airmass established over the region…the potent
upper level disturbance will trigger areas of snow on Friday.
Flurries will be possible late Thursday night and early Friday
morning over far western sections of North Texas…generally along
and west of a Bowie to Weatherford to Lampasas line. Little to no
accumulation is expected with this activity.
Heavier snow will likely develop by the mid morning hours Friday and
continue through the evening…mainly south of Interstate 20.
Periods of flurries and some light snow showers will also be
possible Friday in the immediate Dallas Fort Worth Metro area.
Locations along and south of a line from Cisco to Hillsboro to
Palestine will have the best chance at witnessing accumulating
snowfall…with around one inch possible. Isolated locations may
receive up to 2 inches of snow.
This event continues to develop. The timing and location of the
snowfall…as well as expected accumulations may change over the
coming days. Please keep updated with the latest forecasts and any
possible winter weather advisories from your National Weather
Service in Fort Worth.
