Precipitation will be ongoing on Saturday as cold air settles across the region. Rain showers may transition to light snow or snow flurries across North Texas. No accumulations or impacts are expected at this time. Any change in the amount of expected moisture or track of the system will consequently change the forecast.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected Friday night along and ahead of an Arctic cold front. A few strong to severe storms are possible with damaging wind, hail to 1 inch, and locally heavy rainfall. Though an isolated storm may pop up late afternoon, the timing looks to be mainly in the 8 PM until midnight window. Storms should exit to the east fairly rapidly after midnight as a strong cold front sweeps through the area.
Showers and thunderstorms will be most numerous across eastern North and Central Texas Friday night. Rainfall will average between 0.5- 1.5" east of I-35/35E, but some localized higher amounts to near 2" are possible along and east of a Bonham-Hearne line. With cool and saturated soils across this area, run off will occur readily and cause minor low-land flooding and rises on area rivers.
With arctic air arriving late Friday night into the weekend, and prospects for a brief wintry mix or snow flurries on Saturday, you will see plenty of "worse-case" scenarios or misinformation posted on your favorite social media platforms as we move toward the weekend. Remember to only use trusted sources for your weather information as the system and arctic air arrive this weekend. Make sure weather information is from degreed meteorologists, whether that's your favorite media outlet, private weather companies, or your National Weather Service off in Fort Worth.
