If you like the rain, then you'll like this forecast!

The cold front that dropped temperatures across the region will stall and allow off and on periods of rain to continue across North and Central Texas.

Multiple rounds of rain will move through the area today through Wednesday. This will bring moderate to heavy rain and an increased risk of flooding to parts North and Central Texas.

Updated Thunderstorm Timing: Storms will fire up ahead of the front in the orange area initially. The severe weather threat will be greatest in this area. Large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes will be possible. The cold front will also fire up additional storms, initially across the yellow area. The severe weather threat will be minimal. As the front slides to the southeast late tonight into tomorrow morning, storms will continue into the green area. Gusty winds with isolated large hail will be possible.

02/08/2020

Much of the early to middle part of next week will be cool and wet as a frontal boundary remains stalled out to our south and several mid level impulses move over-top of the cold airmass in place. A stronger system will move through Tuesday night into Wednesday which will bring in drier conditions to the area to close out the work week.

A majority of North and Central Texas saw it least a little bit of winter weather over the past couple of days, even if it was only a few sleet pellets or snow flurries for some. However, a few places saw some noteworthy accumulations! Here's our event recap.

Take a look at this morning's satellite image. The pink/red shades represent where snow/sleet fell and accumulated.

Temperatures tonight will fall into the teens and twenties across much of the region. This may result in freezing of standing water on bridges and overpasses. However, where snow and ice already cover roadways, in particular along and west of a Bowie to Cisco line, roads will remain treacherous through the night. Be cautious driving tonight and Thursday morning.

02/05/2020

02/05/2020

3:47 pm: Possible light snow or sleet moving towards Parker and Tarrant counties. Light sleet was reported in the Granbury area. No impacts or accumulations expected. Send us your reports.

02/05/2020

For the remainder of the day, isolated rain and rain/sleet mix will continue through mid afternoon.

02/03/2020

A powerful winter storm will move through the Southern Plains late Tuesday night into Wednesday after a blast of arctic air spills into the region. Areas of snow and sleet are likely to develop and overspread parts of the region late Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday. Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches of snow will be possible northwest of the Metroplex, with lighter amounts farther south and east. Stay tuned to the latest forecast for updated information.

There is a potential for winter weather around mid-week. The most likely area for travel impacts will be northwest of the D/FW Metroplex where a Winter Storm WATCH is in effect. Travel impacts are still possible outside of the WATCH area. Be sure to check back for updates!

02/02/2020

Here's the latest on the winter weather potential Tuesday night into Wednesday night. Rain will transition to snow/sleet and freezing rain. It will definitely feel cold... wind chills will dip into the 10s and 20s.

🤔 Ever wonder how the NWS determine winter precipitation types?🌨This graphic is a nice, simple way to explain it. Though forecasting isn't that simplistic, a big part of the equation is the depth of the cold air in place.
Stay tuned for the updates!

02/02/2020

An arctic cold front will surge through the region late Tuesday. In areas along and northwest of a line from Ranger to Gainesville, a cold rain may transition to sleet and snow Tuesday night through Wednesday. This is the area with the greatest potential for accumulating snow/sleet and slick spots on bridges. Farther east, including Dallas/Fort Worth and Sherman/Denison, a wintry mix will be possible Wednesday into Wednesday night. For Central and East Texas, including Waco and Temple/Killeen, a cold rain should prevail, but a snowflake or sleet pellet may briefly mix with the rain. In addition to the precipitation, wind chills will fall into the teens and 20s on Wednesday.

light ice pellets in burleson west of spinks ap at 445pm
Look what Mother Nature got me for my birthday ! Aww, you shouldn’t have. . . You really really shouldn’t have.
Check the radar just north of Highway 82 between Bonham and Paris....and just south of the Caddo Grasslands. Something's brewing out there.
You may already know, but just in case. We're under a Tornado Watch til 9:00 pm. Stay alert. Asking the Lord's protection for all - including those First Responders and Emergency Management professionals monitoring the situation.
Very strong smoke in Collin County along PGBT in Plano. Any nearby fires?
Small hail/light sleet mixed with rain in Cedar Hill, TX at 6:35 AM.
On this day exactly 90 years ago, about mid-afternoon, the biggest snowfall in recorded Texas history began. The boy in the photo is my father, J.R. McIlroy, at their farm near Hillsboro. Dad remembers this storm well. He says there was lightning and thunder during much of the night of the 20th and 21st. My guess is this photo was probably taken on the 22nd, as it snowed until evening on the 21st.

Hello.. can you please add the information for Fort Worth Spinks Airport to the KEC55 weather radio reports? There are a lot of us on the latitude of that reporting station that would like to hear it. Thanks Bill Durham
It would appear that the radar loop has misfired. Dates go back several decades.
Checking in .... My weather station in Godley half mile from the High School shows 33 degrees and current wind speed at 24mph. the wind peak was at 52 mph several hours ago. Appreciate all you do stay warm !!
You folks rarely ever call the weather correctly in graham TX. I just looked at your forecast page and it's been showing this image below for hours and we've already gotten over 2 inches of rain, and right now at 12:20 AM it's thundering, lightening and pouring! Is Al Gore your weatherman? What kind of dope are you on?
