Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:58 PM CST on March 5, 2015


... Freezing temperatures may lead to slick spots on area roadways
overnight...

Based on visible satellite imagery... sunshine and temperatures in
the upper 30s were enough to melt most of the snow and ice on the
roadways for locations along and south of a line from Comanche to
Athens. However to the north... there was still some evidence of at
least light snow and sleet still on the ground... and possibly on
area roadways.

Overnight lows are expected to fall well below freezing tonight
across North Texas. For locations where water or slush remain on
area roadways a refreezing will occur. Temperatures are expected
to fall back below freezing after 9 PM this evening. After this
time... wet or slushy roadways will become icy again. While no
additional precipitation will fall... roadways could become
dangerous by Friday morning as temperatures fall into the low to
mid 20s. These temperatures are cold enough to cause any lingering
water or slush to freeze on all area roadways.

Temperatures are expected to climb above freezing tomorrow morning
by 10 am. On Friday... another full day of sunshine combined with
temperatures in the 40s in the afternoon is expected to be enough
to melt any lingering snowfall across the region. These conditions
should also help to dry out roads before temperatures fall below
freezing early Saturday morning.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
323 PM CST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Discussion... 


The temperature trends and anticipated impacts on snow cover and 
Road conditions across North Texas over the next 24 hours have not 
changed...so the late morning update which discusses this in 
detail has been appended below this discussion. 


Friday...as mentioned below...another full day of sunshine is 
expected on Friday...and that combined with temperatures in the 
40s is expected to be sufficient to melt sleet and snow 
accumulations across the region. Assuming the snow is all 
gone...overnight lows Friday night into Saturday morning should 
remain warmer...with lows falling just below freezing in the upper 
20s to low 30s for most locations. 


Saturday...an upper level low pressure system currently located 
off shore just west of the California/Baja California California coast is 
expected to move east towards the Southern Plains on Saturday. As 
it approaches...this feature is expected to amplify shortwave 
ridging over the Southern Plains. Winds are expected to be 
southerly by Saturday afternoon...and the shortwave ridging 
should keep US dry across north and central Texas despite moisture 
return associated with south winds near the surface and 
southwesterly winds aloft. Highs are expected to top out in the 
middle 50s for most locations on Saturday...and perhaps more 
importantly...once temperatures climb above freezing Saturday 
morning...temperatures are expected to remain above freezing for 
the foreseeable future. 


Sunday...the upper low is expected to move east over the Southern 
Plains Sunday afternoon as another shortwave trough digs south 
behind it from the northwestern Continental U.S.. the approach of the 
shortwave trough will spread large scale forcing for ascent over 
the County Warning Area from the southwest to the east during the day on Sunday. 
The best overlap of lift and moisture return looks to occur over 
the southeastern County Warning Area on Sunday so went ahead with a 50 percent 
chance of rain showers at this time. Have probability of precipitation in place for just 
about the entire County Warning Area on Sunday due to the expected lift over the 
region...but precipitation chances decrease to the northwest with 
only a 20 percent chance of rain in place northwest of the dfw 
area. Most importantly...there is no cold air on its way into the 
region...so whatever rain falls on Sunday will remain in liquid 
form with temperatures expected to be in the 40s and 50s. 


Monday...lingered some rain chances over locations generally 
along and south of the Interstate 20 corridor Sunday night into 
Monday as models are struggling to resolve the dynamics and 
evolution of the second shortwave trough that dives into the 
region from the northwest. This trough will likely move over the 
County Warning Area on Monday...however the lift associated with this trough 
appears to be weak in nature at this time. Sunday's lead upper low 
or upper trough is expected to send a weak Pacific type frontal 
boundary across the County Warning Area which will likely advect some drier air 
into the region from the north. How extensive this dry air 
intrusion is will dictate how much...if any...additional rain 
develops over the County Warning Area on Monday. Once again...temperatures are 
expected to remain well above freezing...so there is no wintry 
precipitation in the forecast. 


Remainder of next week...behind the second shortwave trough...the 
consensus of guidance is that weak upper level subsidence will 
remain over the Southern Plains. This should result in at least a 
few days characterized by mostly clear skies and temperatures 
warming up into the 60s to lower 70s mid-week. Another upper level 
storm system will likely approach the Southern Plains Friday or 
into the weekend. Even if this system pans out...there is no 
current evidence that suggests we will get cold enough for wintry 
precipitation at this time. Showers and thunderstorms would be a 
possibility.

Previous update... 


..temperature trends and the anticipated impacts on Road 
conditions and snow melt across north and central Texas for the 
next 24 hours... 


Went ahead and cancelled the winter storm warnings and winter 
weather advisories that were in effect across the County Warning Area with mostly 
sunny skies in place and temperatures increasing across the region 
this morning. 


High temperatures today will be held back quite a bit by all of 
the sleet and snow that fell across the region overnight. While 
temperatures this morning remained below freezing anywhere where 
snow and sleet accumulated...snow and sleet on area roadways was 
already starting to melt. Any area roadways where the Road surface 
is exposed to the sun will benefit from this "early melt" before 
temperatures actually climb above freezing because the dark 
surfaces of the Road will absorb the sun's energy causing these 
surfaces to heat up faster than the air. This process occurs 
everyday actually...but it is more noticeable when there's 
something on the roadways to melt off. Starting off the day under 
mostly sunny skies for most of the region will help snow and sleet 
to melt off area roadways significantly faster than simply waiting 
for the air temperature to climb above freezing. 


Temperatures are still on track to climb above freezing right 
after noon today for most of north and central Texas. Once air 
temperatures climb above freezing the air and Road surface heating 
by the sun will work together to start melting snow and sleet 
accumulations efficiently this afternoon. Snow and sleet melt will 
be greatest on well traveled roadways because persistent traffic 
is more likely to expose Road surfaces to the sun. Also...while 
this is fairly common sense it's Worth noting...not all areas 
received the exact same amount of snow. Areas that received less 
snowfall will see improving Road conditions the fastest. 


In terms of the timing of temperatures above freezing today into 
tonight (for locations that received at least 1.5 inches of 
snow/sleet accumulation overnight): 


Urbanized areas (including most of the dfw area): 


Climb above freezing today: noon 
fall below freezing: 8-9 PM 
overnight low: 22-25 degrees 
climb above freezing friday: by 10 am 
friday's high temperature: middle-40s 


Non-urban areas (most of the remainder of north texas): 


Climb above freezing today: noon-1pm 
fall below freezing: 7-8 PM 
overnight low: 19-23 degrees 
climb above freezing friday: by 10 am 
friday's high temperature: middle-40s 


Anticipated impacts: 


Urban areas will tend to absorb more of the sun's energy 
today...keeping the air temperature above freezing for an extra 
hour or so this evening. Regardless...temperatures are expected 
to fall into the low to middle 20s tonight...so any residual 
snow...sleet...or water on area roadways is likely to refreeze 
before sunrise Friday morning. No additional precipitation is 
expected however...so any roadways that become dry before 8-9 PM 
tonight should remain in good shape for Friday morning. 


During the day on Friday...another day of full sunshine combined 
with temperatures climbing into the middle 40s should help to clear 
area roadways of almost all snow and ice by Friday afternoon. 


In summary...expect Road conditions to improve quite a bit this 
afternoon across north and central Texas. However the chances of 
roads becoming completely ice and snow free before we fall below 
freezing again tonight is expected to vary based on the discussion 
above across the region. Expect some sort of snow/sleet/ice will 
remain on roadways that are less traveled...or where snowfall 
totals were greater than 4 inches overnight. Factors such as which 
roads may have been plowed or semi-cleared by heavy traffic are 
very difficult to predict on a multi-County/city scale. Confidence 
is very high that any remaining slush on roads after 9 PM will 
become refrozen to Road surfaces before sunrise Friday morning. 
Snow and sleet accumulations are expected to be cleared off of 
most area roadways by Friday afternoon.

Aviation... 
/issued 1149 am CST Thursday Mar 5 2015/ 
VFR conditions are expected at all locations for the duration of 
this forecast cycle. North winds around 10 knots in the metroplex and 
15-17 knots at kact will become light and variable around 06/00z as 
a surface ridge builds in from the northwest. Temperatures will 
climb above freezing this afternoon...but with clear skies and 
light winds...temperatures should fall below freezing again by 06/03z. 
Low temperatures in the lower to middle 20s may turn some of the wet 
surfaces this afternoon into icy surfaces overnight and Friday 
morning. 


Otherwise...south winds of 10 knots or less are expected by 15z 
Friday as the ridge axis shifts east of North Texas.
