    Areas of light freezing drizzle and drizzle will continue to occur namely northeast of a Hamilton...Dallas...Greenville line through early evening...as surface temperatures hover at or just below freezing. An additional hundredth or more of light glaze could collect on elevated surfaces...especially where temperatures remain steady at 29 to 30 degrees. Some re-freezing of water or slush could occur across these areas after nightfall. The freezing line will be very slow to shift northwest...and will likely not do so until after midnight and toward dayreak Sunday... as a storm system over the southwest states slowly approaches. Otherwise...it will remain cloudy with north or northeast winds 5 to 10 mph and wind chills in the 20s to 30s over the southeast counties. Though Road conditions have improved across most areas...bridges and overpasses will still have icy spots across especially the northwest half of North Texas including the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Check Road reports before traveling tonight across the northwest half of the region.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
654 PM CST Sat Feb 28 2015 


Update... 
areas of light rain or drizzle continue this evening and the trend 
will continue through the overnight hours. Areas where 
temperatures are just below 32 degrees could see some additional 
very light icing overnight. This is most likely to occur in the 
northwest part of the County Warning Area where the Winter Weather Advisory 
continues until midnight. 


Low level jet of 35-40kts will enhance lift primarily across the 
eastern half of the County Warning Area through the overnight hours so will have 
likely probability of precipitation in those areas...although amounts will still generally 
be light. Temperatures are already at or above freezing in most of 
those areas...so no significant impacts are expected. 


As far as short term impacts...most travel impacts will be related 
to ongoing areas of ice/slush on area roads that did not melt 
during the day and not additional ice accumulation. We will 
continue to monitor temperatures over the next few hours for any 
additional extension of the current advisory.

Aviation... 
/issued 557 PM CST Sat Feb 28 2015/ 
/00z tafs/ 


Challenges will continue to be timing -fzra/-fzdz to -ra/-dz this 
evening across the dfw metropolitan airports...as temperatures vary from 
30-32f. In addition...timing ceilings from IFR to LIFR/or possibly 
vlifr/and visibilities down from MVFR to IFR will be tricky. 


We currently are still awaiting our 00z forward sounding...but the 
12z forward sounding already showed warm air advection around 850mb in full swing 
well in advance of strong upper trough digging over Nevada/CA/AZ this 
evening. Have decided to extend -fzra/-fzdz wording at metropolitan 
airports until 02z with aforementioned temperatures. However...any light 
precipitation should not aggregate on aircraft in any extreme 
manner with temperatures hovering at the freezing point. We expect 
surface temperatures to slowly modify above freezing through midnight 
with the strengthen warm air advection and winds above the shallow Arctic frontal 
inversion. Winds will remain north/NE less than 10 kts throughout...so 
any warm up will be very slow with precipitation falling into the 
cold layer and snow pack still on the ground. Will prevail IFR 
through late evening...then LIFR/vlifr through midday Sunday... 
back to IFR Sun afternoon. 


Waco regional will have similar trends just Sans the freezing 
precipitation which temperatures above freezing now.

Previous discussion... /issued 345 PM CST Sat Feb 28 2015/ 
temperatures will remain near steady or slowly warm tonight with 
the freezing line at sunset roughly from Goldthwaite to 
Weatherford to Gainesville. We expect periods of light freezing 
drizzle in locations along and west of the freezing line with 
periods of mainly drizzle or very light rain elsewhere. We have 
decided to extend the Winter Weather Advisory until midnight for 
locations west of a line from Goldthwaite to Weatherford to 
Mineral Wells and let the current Winter Weather Advisory expire 
at 6 PM for all other counties that currently remain in the 
advisory. The snow cover today has been largely responsible for 
the slow warmup as evident by the more rapid warmup in the 
counties that saw very little measurable winter precipitation. 
Additional ice accumulations should be negligible overall but the 
addition of even light icing to already icy spots will continue to 
create travel impacts. We expect that all sites will warm to 
freezing or slightly above overnight as the shallow Arctic airmass 
continues to slowly modify due to relatively warm precipitation 
falling through it. 


Temperatures Sunday morning should be above freezing with the 
exception of a few extreme northwest counties. Strong low level 
warm air advection will continue over the slowly modifying Arctic 
airmass to produce periods of light rain or drizzle along with 
overcast skies and some patchy fog. Highs on Sunday will be 
generally in the 40s...except for some upper 30s in the north and 
50s in the south. 


A secondary surge of cool air will move across North Texas Sunday 
night as a short wave rotates across the Upper Middle west. 
Temperatures Sunday night will cool mainly into the 30s and 40s 
but should remain above freezing. Lift supplied by the cold front 
in combination with some weak large scale lift from an approaching 
Pacific trough will bring a chance of showers to the entire region 
Sunday night through Monday. The upper trough in the Pacific will 
deepen near Southern California Monday night while a surface 
trough deepens across the Central Plains. This pattern will bring 
a surge of warm and moist air northward into North Texas Monday 
night through Tuesday. Middle level lapse rates will also increase at 
the same time due to increasing large scale lift and this will 
result in a chance of thunderstorms. The best chance of storms 
will be Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening when a pre-frontal 
trough moves in from the west. Vertical wind shear and 
instability may be sufficient to support some strong 
thunderstorms...especially east of the Interstate 35 corridor late 
Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening. 


A strong cold front is prognosticated to move across North Texas Tuesday 
night and bring much colder air and windy conditions. Since the 
upper low will still be west of the region at this time...there 
will be a potential for more winter weather Wednesday through 
Wednesday night. It is much too early to assess the potential 
impacts from this event but forecast soundings suggest that sleet 
would be the primary precipitation type and if model quantitative precipitation forecast is 
correct...it could be measurable and possibly significant. All 
precipitation should end by Thursday as the upper trough axis 
passes to the east. 


West to southwest flow aloft should set up across North Texas 
next weekend with slowly warming temperatures and no precipitation.
