Statement as of 3:46 PM CST on March 02, 2015
... Winter weather possible across north and central Texas Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning...
Rain will mix with and then changeover to a wintry mix... most likely to be sleet... across much of the region by the afternoon or evening hours Wednesday. Precipitation should come to an end by Thursday afternoon as the upper level system moves east of the region.
* Location... the areas most likely to see accumulations of ice or sleet approaching one half inch are those along and southeast of a line from Lampasas to Athens. However... all of north and central Texas is likely to see at least some light wintry precipitation during this event.
* Timing... we expect rain to transition over to a wintry mix beginning along the Red River around mid-morning Wednesday ... across the metroplex shortly after midday and around Waco/Killeen/Palestine by sunset.
* Precipitation type... mainly sleet... with some snow and freezing rain possible.
* Accumulation and impacts... accumulations remain uncertain at this time... but with temperatures dropping below freezing during the afternoon it would take little to produce deteriorating Road conditions and some travel delays by Wednesday evening. Hazardous travel conditions are most likely along and southeast of a line from Lampasas to Athens at this time.
* Alternate scenarios... the amount and duration of wintry precipitation depend on how fast cold air moves into place on Wednesday... the earlier the cold air is here... the more wintry precipitation we can expect. Areas most likely to be impacted may change in later forecasts and the timing of the cold air into the region is the primary factor limiting confidence in how much and how long wintry precipitation will fall during this event.
Please monitor future forecasts regarding the potential for winter weather across North Texas Wednesday through Thursday.
