After looking at the latest models coming in this evening, it appears my forecast from earlier today looks to still be on track. The timing of the precipitation will be from around daybreak thru the morning hours and favor those areas south and east of Dallas. There will be some travel concerns for those areas in East Texas.
Here is an image from the National Weather Service Office. I agree with what this shows.
A few snow pellets were seen this morning across the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. Tonight we will likely see more wintry weather after midnight. A light sleet/snow mixture will be possible here in the metro area with slightly heavier precipitation just to our south and east. There is a greater risk of sleet/freezing rain for areas southeast of a line from Canton to Corsicana to Waco. This would include areas like Athens, Palestine, Fairfield. A few slick spots would be possible again in this area for our Tuesday morning commute. This is also the area that saw some slick spots this morning from a mix of precipitation.
A few slick spots could be possible in the Dallas / Fort Worth area tomorrow morning depending on the intensity of the precipitation. Right now precip is looking rather light, but it wouldn’t take much to cause a few slick spots on bridges and overpasses as temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s tomorrow morning. Be sure to watch CBS 11 THIS MORNING starting at 430am Tuesday morning for the latest update.
ANOTHER SMALL CHANCE OF WINTRY WEATHER..
Another small chance of wintry weather will be possible Wednesday night into Thursday. This is looking less likely as there may not be much moisture in the atmosphere to work with, but we will keep an eye on this system. Parts of northern Louisiana and southern Arkansas could end up with snow though on Thursday. A change in the track of the upper level low would alter our winter weather chances.
Every year the National Weather Service hosts storm spotter training classes for the public. They travel to every county in North Texas and hold training seminars. CBS 11 is a proud supporter of this program and sponsor the Collin County training. This year the training is this Saturday, January 19, in Frisco from 8am to 430pm. This year it is being held at the Collin College Preston Ridge Campus Conference Center. Please come out and join us for this very informative day. You will learn how to visually spot different structures of thunderstorms. From updrafts, to microbrusts, to tornadoes, become an expert in what you are seeing when you are looking at a thunderstorm.
