…SLEET AND SNOW POSSIBLE OVER NORTH TEXAS TOMORROW…

AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH NORTH TEXAS TOMORROW. WITH AMPLE MOISTURE IN PLACE AND TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 30S…THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR LIGHT SLEET AND SNOW NORTH OF A LINE FROM CISCO…TO BURLESON…TO ATHENS. HEAVIER PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR SOUTH OF THIS LINE WHERE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES AND WINTER STORM WARNINGS ARE IN PLACE.

TOTAL ICE AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS NORTHERN NORTH TEXAS ARE EXPECTED TO BE RATHER LIGHT. HAVING SAID THIS…EVEN A SMALL AMOUNT OF WINTER PRECIPITATION CAN CAUSE TRAVEL PROBLEMS. COMMUTING TOMORROW MAY BECOME PROBLEMATIC AS PRECIPITATION BEGINS TO FALL. IF TRAVEL IS NECESSARY…DRIVERS MUST BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AND ALERT FOR ICY PATCHES ON BRIDGES…OVERPASSES…AND LESS TRAVELED ROADS.

SOME FLUCTUATION OR CHANGE IN THE STORM TRACK COULD OCCUR IN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS…RESULTING IN ADDITIONAL AREAS BEING INCLUDED IN AN ADVISORY OR WARNING. PAY ATTENTION TO FUTURE FORECASTS REGARDING THIS DEVELOPING WINTER WEATHER SITUATION.

We (my city, not the metroplex) didn’t see much actual ice, so chances are we won’t see much – if any – snow, but I hope, I hope, I hope.
