Evening Forecast


Along the Red River there will be a little light snow falling this evening.  There could be a light mixture of rain and snow in the metroplex for those area north of I-20.  Any wintry mix that falls will be light and surface temperatures will stay above freezing so no travel impacts are expected.  The only issue will be where snow is falling we will see reduced visibility with blowing snow.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued until Midnight for Montague, Jack, Young, and Stephens County.  A 1/2″ to 1″ of accumulation will be possible in these areas.

Areas shaded in purple are under WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY

Temperatures will be dropping into the 30s overnight.  But winds will stay gusty thru the night and tomorrow morning.  Wind gusts around daybreak Wednesday will still be around 35 mph.  This will give us wind chills in the 20s tomorrow morning.  Bundle up the kids for school tomorrow morning!

Here is a look at the hour by hour forecast showing wind gusts, temperatures and the wind chill.
