...WINTER STORM OUTLOOK FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS...

AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE OVER NORTH AND
CENTRAL TEXAS FROM SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY BRINGING A CHANCE
OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE REGION.

PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION FROM WEST
TO EAST SUNDAY EVENING. PRECIPITATION MAY START OUT IN LIQUID
FORM...HOWEVER AS TEMPERATURES DROP SUNDAY EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT...RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE OVER TO FREEZING RAIN
OR SLEET FOR PARTS OF THE REGION. WHEREVER TEMPERATURES ARE BELOW
FREEZING...FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE.
THE FREEZING LINE IS EXPECTED TO EXIST SOMEWHERE ACROSS NORTH
CENTRAL TEXAS DURING THIS EVENT...COMPLICATING THE FORECAST.

AT THIS TIME...LOCATIONS ALONG AND NORTHWEST OF A LINE FROM
COMANCHE TO DALLAS TO BONHAM ARE THE MOST LIKELY TO SEE
SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES WHILE PRECIPITATION IS FALLING...HOWEVER
CONFIDENCE IN THE EXACT POSITION OF THE FREEZING LINE IS SOMEWHAT
LOW AT THIS TIME. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS ARE SUPPORTIVE OF ICE AND
SLEET ACCUMULATIONS THAT COULD CAUSE TRAVEL AND POWER PROBLEMS
AS EARLY AS MONDAY MORNING IF TEMPERATURES ARE COLD ENOUGH. AS A
RESULT...THIS WINTER STORM OUTLOOK IS BEING ISSUED TO HIGHLIGHT
THE POTENTIAL FOR TRAVEL AND POWER DISRUPTIONS FROM LATE SUNDAY
NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING.

ANY SIGNIFICANT WINTRY ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO COME TO AN
END FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST MONDAY EVENING.

CHECK THE FORECAST THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND AS SLIGHTLY WARMER OR
COOLER TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO
THE IMPACTS OF ANY WINTRY PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE REGION.
