Good evening, DFW. Jonathan williams here! I've been looking at some new data that just came in and I have much higher concerns for the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex regarding the potential of a wintry mix expected tomorrow. The latest NAM, which thinks temperatures should be in the mid 40s now with temps in the mid 30s across most of the metroplex, has widespread freezing rain and sleet in Tarrant, Northern Dallas, Collin, and Denton Counties tomorrow morning. With temperatures running below what it thinks we are now, we may end up in the upper 20s and lower 30s in the DFW metroplex by tomorrow morning, therefore, have included a wintry mix after 10z tonight. (4AM) Accumulations with the NAM have up to 1/4" of an inch of ice tomorrow morning with some light sleet accumulations as well. The winter weather advisory has been expanded to include Denton County, and I expect it to cover the entire metroplex by tomorrow morning. Do I think this will reach Winter Storm Warning criteria? I doubt it but anything is possible seeing how crazy this winter has been. Hazardous travel is expected tomorrow morning, with a widespread rain/freezing rain mix tomorrow afternoon, possibly mixed with sleet at times. Bottom line is that confidence is increasing significantly for icy conditions. Stay tuned and I'll have updates in the morning along with your updated 7 day forecast!
