... Winter weather possible across North Texas mid week...

A cold Arctic airmass will spread south across north and central
Texas on Wednesday following the passage of a strong cold front.
With cold air already in place... an upper level disturbance will
generate mostly light precipitation across the region as it
approaches from the southwest. Rain will mix with and then changeover
to sleet across much of the region by the afternoon or evening
hours Wednesday. Some snow may mix with sleet Wednesday night
into Thursday morning... and some freezing rain will be a
possibility over the southeastern-most counties Wednesday night
and Thursday morning. Precipitation should come to an end by
Thursday afternoon as the upper level system moves east of the
region.

* Location... all of North Texas

* timing... Wednesday across mainly the northern half of North
Texas. Wednesday night across all of North Texas. Thursday
morning across mainly the southern half of North Texas.

* Precipitation type... mainly sleet... with some snow and freezing
rain possible.

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

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