Winter Weather Advisory

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect western and northern North Texas.

Most of D-FW is NOT under a Winter Weather Advisory at this time, but Denton and Collin counties are under the advisory.

Areas under the Winter Weather Advisory will have the best chance for accumulating snow. Mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces. But those elevated surfaces could include bridges and overpasses, which could see slushy, snowy conditions and some travel issues.


Tuesday late evening – night:

A round of mostly snow will move across the northern part of North Texas. From northern parts of DFW to the north.

Best chance to see accumulating snow will be in areas that are under the Winter Weather Advisory. In those areas, snow will mainly accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces, but some slushy bridges or overpasses as well as some roads are possible.

Overnight – Wednesday morning

Any rain or snow will taper off during the nighttime hours with all of North Texas dry by midnight or a little after.

Temps overnight will mostly stay above freezing, so re-freezing or icy roads are not likely for most. The exception being western and northern North Texas where temps could drop down to around or just below freezing. Some icy roads may be possible first thing Wednesday in these areas.

Possible snow amounts

The farther north you are, the better the chances for accumulating snow. Mainly for grassy and elevated surfaces.

In and around DFW a dusting or brief coating of snow on grassy or elevated areas are possible, snowy roads are not likely.

Because temps are expected to stay above freezing, widespread travel issues are not likely due to snowy or icy roads. 

The exception being far northern or northwestern areas where higher amounts could cause some slushy or snowy roads.

Rainfall totals

As of Tuesday evening, widespread rainfall of around 1/2in to 1in has occurred in North Texas. This continues to be rain that we need!
