An arctic cold front is moving southeast through North and Central Texas early this morning with northerly winds will increase to 15 to 25 mph behind the cold front. Area radar shows a few light bands of precipitation along and south of I-20. At this time, most of this is drizzle or sprinkles, though a few snow flurries are possible as well. No impacts expected, but minor concerns are expected by daybreak across the southwest counties.
An arctic cold front has moved through North Central Texas. There is a chance of some light drizzle or light rain south of a Cisco to Hillsboro to Palestine line this morning. In this area, and to the west of a line from Hillsboro to Killeen, temperatures will be below freezing early this morning. This will allow for some light freezing rain or sleet before temperatures warm above freezing later this morning. Ground temperatures are still relatively warm, so no significant travel problems are expected, but some light icing could occur on elevated surfaces.
It'll feel like walking into an icebox this morning across North and Central Texas. Temperatures in the 20s and 30s, coupled with winds gusting to near 30 MPH will create wind chill values (or what it feels like to exposed skin) in the teens and 20s this morning! High temperatures will not make it out of the 30s for many today.
It will be cold Thursday night/Friday morning. Low temperatures Friday morning will range from the upper teens northwest to mid 20s south by daybreak. Though north winds will diminish to 10 mph or less, wind chill readings will be mostly in the teens to start your Friday off.
With the expected arctic air intrusion Wednesday night through Friday, remember to keep the 4 P's in mind for protection against the frigid temperatures expected. Protect pipes, faucets, and sensitive plants, as well as preparing outdoor pets and people without ample heating for the impending chilly weather ahead. Also, shut off sprinklers as they can cause icy patches on roads and sidewalks resulting in injuries! Check your heater to ensure its functioning properly before the cold weather arrives.
Dry and cool conditions are expected for Friday. An area of low pressure will approach the region on Saturday, bringing a chance for some light rain/drizzle Saturday and Saturday night, followed by a low risk for some isolated thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon.
