Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Dense Fog Advisory  Statement as of 8:50 PM CST on March 2, 2015


... Dense fog advisory in effect until 10 am CST Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a dense fog
advisory... which is in effect until 10 am CST Tuesday.

* Visibility... reduced to less than 1/4 mile at times throughout
the night.

* Impacts... reduced visibility will make driving hazardous at
night especially in areas where roads are wet.

* Other impacts... areas of drizzle will also accompany the fog
through the night.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will be reduced to less
than one quarter mile. If driving... slow down... use your low-beam
headlights... and leave plenty of distance between you and the
vehicle ahead of you.






 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:48 am CST on March 3, 2015


... Winter weather possible across north and central Texas
Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning...

Rain will mix with and then change over to a wintry mix... most
likely to freezing rain and sleet... across much of the region by
the afternoon or evening hours Wednesday. Precipitation should
change over to snow especially across the north Wednesday night.
Precipitation should come to an end by Thursday afternoon as the
upper level system moves east of the region.

* Location... all of north and central Texas is likely to see at
least some light wintry precipitation during this event.

* Timing... we expect rain to transition over to a wintry mix
beginning along the Red River by mid-morning Wednesday
... across the metroplex shortly after midday and around
Waco/Killeen/Palestine by sunset.

* Precipitation type... freezing rain and sleet... with some snow
possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

* Accumulation and impacts... accumulations remain uncertain at
this time... but with temperatures dropping below freezing
Wednesday afternoon it would take little to produce
deteriorating Road conditions and some travel delays by
Wednesday evening.

* Alternate scenarios... the amount and duration of wintry
precipitation depend on how fast cold air moves into place on
Wednesday. The earlier the cold air is here... the more wintry
precipitation we can expect. Areas most likely to be affected
may change in later forecasts.

Please monitor future forecasts regarding the potential for
winter weather across North Texas Wednesday through Thursday.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
606 am CST Tuesday Mar 3 2015 


Aviation... 
/12z tafs/ 


Concerns...IFR fog/drizzle this morning...frontal passage Wednesday morning. 


Southerly winds will ensue this morning...but with ample moisture 
upstream...ceilings and visibility will only gradually improve. Despite 
a warming boundary layer...a persistent inversion will keep MVFR 
ceilings in place today. Showers and isolated thunderstorms this 
afternoon will primarily impact East Texas...thus have chosen to 
exclude them from the tafs. 


Ceilings and visibility will steadily deteriorate tonight. More 
widespread precipitation will approach from the west after 
midnight as the initial wind shift reaches metroplex taf sites. 
A transition to freezing/frozen precipitation may occur Wednesday 
afternoon...but this is beyond the scope of the 12z tafs.

Previous discussion... /issued 400 am CST Tuesday Mar 3 2015/ 
a dense fog advisory will remain in effect through 10 am for the 
entire forecast area. A warm front is forecast to lift north 
through the forecast area today scouring out the remaining shallow 
cold airmass that has plagued the region since late last week. 
Temperatures will rise into the upper 50s northeast to around 70 
across the southwest this afternoon. These will be the warmest 
temperatures that we have had since two saturdays ago /February 
21st/. There will be a chance of showers area wide this afternoon. 
Models show a little instability...so have placed isolated 
thunderstorms across the eastern third. 


A strong cold front will sweep down the plains today...moving 
into the northwestern zones by midnight...and to the I-20 corridor 
toward daybreak Wednesday. This front will then move through The 
Temple-Killeen area by midday Wednesday. Much colder air will 
accompany this front. We will see a chance of showers area wide 
tonight and maybe some isolated thunderstorms. 


As temperatures fall behind the front...some light freezing rain 
will be possible in the northwestern zones Wednesday morning...and 
as temperatures continue to fall...some freezing rain and sleet 
will be possible across the northwestern half before sunset 
Wednesday. Precipitation types are a challenge...as the NAM 
soundings are a little warmer...slower with the cold air...than 
the GFS. Have leaned closer to the GFS and thus placed 
rain/freezing rain and some sleet across the northwestern half for 
Wednesday afternoon. We should then see a transitioning over to a 
sleet/snow mix across the northern 2/3s and freezing rain/sleet 
mix across the south for Wednesday evening. The GFS forecast 
sounding shows that the warm nose aloft disappears by 00z Thursday 
at dfw but hangs on at Waco past 06z Thursday. The precipitation 
should shut off by daybreak Thursday across the northwestern 
third. Some light snow is possible into Thursday morning across 
most of the rest of the forecast area. Some freezing rain/sleet 
will be possible across the extreme southeast Thursday morning. 
Precipitation amounts look to be light at this time. Will hold off 
on issuing a Winter Weather Advisory for Wednesday 
afternoon/Wednesday night at this time. 


The cold weather will continue through Friday before a moderating 
trend begins. Low rain chances will return to the south Saturday 
and Saturday night as a short wave slides across south Texas. 
Otherwise expect dry weather with temperatures returning to near 
seasonal normals for the beginning of next week.
