Hazardous Weather Outlook

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
411 PM CST WED MAR 4 2015

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north central
texas, northeast texas and south central texas.

.day one, this afternoon and tonight

a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet will continue to move
southeast from a line from breckenridge to decatur to gainesville
this afternoon. this will spread southward and affect all of north
and central texas through the overnight hours as arctic air
deepens across the region.

for areas along a line from breckenridge to decatur to
gainesville, snow may mix in with the sleet by late this evening.
the combination of ice, sleet, and snow accumulations are
likely to lead to some hazardous travel conditions, and a winter
storm warning is in effect for these locations as a result.

further southeast, for areas along a comanche to dallas to paris
line, ice, sleet and snow accumulations are expected to be
higher. impacts are expected to be more widespread, and a winter
storm warning is in effect for these areas as well. hazardous
driving conditions are very likely.

however, for areas along a lampasas, to waco, to athens
line, higher ice accumulations are possible, and a winter
storm warning is in effect for these areas as well. higher ice
amounts could put added stress on the power lines, so widespread
power outages are possible in these areas, as well as hazardous
travel.

north winds are also expected to increase in intensity across the
region to 25 to 30 mph by this evening, gusting to 40 mph at
times. these strong winds may exacerbate dangerous driving
conditions for high profile vehicles, especially those traveling
along west to east oriented roads. these strong northerly winds
coupled with the potential ice accumulation may cause issues for
power lines as early as tonight across the region.

.days two through seven, thursday through tuesday

wintry precipitation is generally expected to end from northwest
to southeast across the region early thursday morning.
temperatures are expected to remain below freezing however, so
any icy roadways will likely remain ice or snow covered through
thursday morning. skies are expected to clear and temperatures are
expected to warm thursday afternoon, and snow and ice will begin
to melt off roads thereafter.

.spotter information statement...

spotter activation is not expected at this time, however all
spotters are encouraged to relay reports of precipitation type and
any ice or snow accumulations to the National Weather Service in
fort worth.

Hazardous Weather Outlook

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
903 AM CST WED MAR 4 2015

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north central
texas, northeast texas and south central texas.

.day one, today and tonight

a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet is expected to develop
northwest of a line from comanche to dallas to bonham this
afternoon, and spread southward through the overnight hours as
arctic air deepens across the region. snow may mix in with the
sleet by late this evening from northwest to southeast as well.
the combination of ice, sleet, and snow accumulations are very
likely to lead to widespread hazardous travel conditions along and
northeast of a line from goldthwaite to hillsboro to canton, and
a winter storm warning is in effect for these locations as a
result.

for locations to the southeast of this line, ice, sleet and snow
accumulations are expected to remain lighter, so impacts are
expected to be more localized in nature. hazardous driving
conditions are still possible, however the primary impacts are
expected to be to bridges and overpasses.

north winds are also expected to increase in intensity to 25 to 30
mph by this evening, gusting to 40 mph at times. these strong
winds may exacerbate dangerous driving conditions for high profile
vehicles, especially those traveling along west to east oriented
roads. these strong northerly winds may also cause some power
outages if too much ice accumulates on powerlines this evening.
overall ice accumulations are expected to remain fairly close to
one tenth of an inch which should only lead to limited power line
impacts. if ice accumulations are higher though, power line
damage could become more common.

.days two through seven, thursday through tuesday

wintry precipitation is generally expected to end from northwest
to southeast across the region early thursday morning.
temperatures are expected to remain below freezing however, so
any icy roadways will likely remain ice or snow covered through
thursday morning. skies are expected to clear and temperatures are
expected to warm thursday afternoon, and snow and ice will begin
to melt off roads thereafter.
