Wintry precipitation possible Saturday night through Sunday morning

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth said today that there is a potential for freezing drizzle, possibly some light freezing rain, Saturday night through Sunday morning.

A strong cold front will move through the region on Saturday. Temperatures will be quickly falling behind the front, and at least the northern half of the region could be in the 30s by sunset Saturday. Overnight, temperatures will continue to fall into the 20s and lower 30s across all of North and Central Texas.

There are some indications within the weather models that light precipitation, either in the form of light rain or drizzle, may fall across parts of North and Central Texas late Saturday night through Sunday. If the development of drizzle or light rain falls where temperatures are below 32 degrees, some light icing and impacts would be possible.

The Weather Service said at this time, confidence is not high in the development of light freezing drizzle/rain, but if/where freezing precipitation occurs, a thin glaze of ice on bridges, overpasses, exposed surfaces and possibly some roads will be possible.

In addition, wind chill values in the teens can be expected Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Watch for updates from the Weather Service.
