Snow Forecast for Thursday in North Texas
Light snow will be falling tomorrow morning for some of us in North Texas. There will be some light accumulation in some areas.
A strong upper level disturbance is moving toward Texas. This is currently located over New Mexico.
This will spread lift in the atmosphere over North Texas. The moisture is somewhat limited but the lift with this disturbance is strong enough where it will produce snow.
As of right now, I am still only expecting flurries in the immediate Dallas/Fort Worth area with some light snow for the western and northern half of the metroplex. There is a greater threat of accumulation for areas well west of Fort Worth.
Here’s a look at the timing and some impacts.
This snow will be very light and fluffy. The moisture content of the snow will be low, so that will make it very light and easily blown around. This means not good snow ball making for those that see any accum. But it also means that snow will be blown off the roads to some degree.
Because of the snow potential, the western part of North Texas is under a Winter Weather Advisory from 3am Thursday until 2pm.
Snow is not the only big story tomorrow it will be the dangerous wind chills.
Temperatures tomorrow will stay below freezing all day, but gusty north winds in the morning will bring the wind chill down to -5 to 5 degrees.
Below are the air temperatures for tomorrow morning.
And here are the wind chills. This is what it will feel like outside.
Because of these low wind chills, parts of the area are under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY. The counties shaded in blue are in that advisory.
It will be a very cold day on Thursday. Here’s the timeline.
There is still the threat for very light sleet, freezing rain, snow on Friday. This could pose a bigger problems for area roadways on Friday compared to the light snow on Thursday. So stay tuned.
