A sharp cold front will blast through North and Central Texas tonight. Rain and/or a few storms are possible. Severe weather is unlikely, though a few storms may contain small hail. Temperatures will quickly fall into the 40s in the wake of the front with very strong northwest winds of 20 to 30 MPH. Winds may gusts as high as 35 MPH.
A Wind Advisory is in effect for all of North and Central Texas from 12 AM to 6 PM on Saturday. Sustained winds of 20-30 MPH with gusts in excess of 35 MPH from the northwest can be expected behind a cold front passage. These strong winds combined with cold temperatures will result in wind chill values in the 20s and 30s.
High temperatures will only climb into the upper 30s to near 40 degrees for parts of the area. Highs across Central TX will climb into the 50s. Northwest winds of 20 to 30 MPH with gusts to near 40 MPH possible. With regards to the potential for winter weather. The bottom line is that icy roads/bridges are NOT expected across any parts of North or Central Texas. The best chances for a rain/snow mix will be in area 1. Some minor accumulations on grassy surfaces are possible. Mostly a cold rain with perhaps few snow flakes mixed in are possible in area #2. Other areas should just see a cold rain.
Due to the government shutdown, the Collin County SKYWARN class originally scheduled for Saturday, January 19, 2019 has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 23, 2019.
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.
Want to be a storm spotter? SKYWARN season starts soon, so find a class near you! Please note that some of these classes could be cancelled due to the government shutdown. See the full schedule here:
