Snow is already affecting N Texas this morning, as we discussed yesterday. Here's a very quick update on our thinking:
Snow will continue to overspread most of North and Central Texas through the morning hours, and continue through the day. There will be accumulations in most areas - including on many roads. The snow will become lighter and more intermittent as move into the late afternoon/early evening hours. There may be a few hours this evening and overnight where we see no precipitation. There WILL be slick spots and travel impacts today across N Texas, but the exact behavior of the roads (due to enhanced daytime traffic) cannot be predicted very well.
At some point after 6 PM, our temperature profile will warm up, and the precipitation type will chance to light freezing drizzle. This drizzle will likely continue intermittently through the morning hours Saturday. With temperatures remaining just below freezing, it will likely freeze on contact with elevated surfaces, and probably some road surfaces too. Temperatures by midday should climb above freezing, diminishing any further icing impacts.
