Winter Storm Watch for all of North Texas Wednesday
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Another strong upper level disturbance will move over North Texas late Tuesday night, creating precipitation and dragging down cold air. The combination of the two will lead to winter weather once again for North Texas.
Starting around 10 p.m. Tuesday into 2 a.m. Wednesday we will see rain in the metroplex. That rain will then briefly change to freezing rain and sleet before changing to snow before sunrise Wednesday morning. The snow will continue during the morning and then taper off by the midday.
Snowfall totals on a broad scale are looking around 1” to 3” in the metroplex, but there is a strong possibility that we see 2” to 4” with some locations seeing 5 inches. The higher snowfall totals will be found in the northern areas of the metroplex especially up into Collin and Denton Counties. Along the Red River 6” of snow is possible with some areas in Oklahoma seeing over a foot of snow.
Temperatures will be dropping into the 20s Tuesday night and staying in the 20s all day Wednesday.
Thursday will stay below freezing with temperatures in the teens Thursday morning and highs near 30 degrees. This cold shot won’t last as long as last week’s cold. By Friday highs will be in the 40s then near 60 on Saturday and in the mid 60s on Sunday.
