Severe storms & snow all a possibility in DFW the next few days
The next few days will bring chances of strong to severe thunderstorms along with a few flurries of snow, says the National Weather Service.
A strong cold front is forecasted to move through North Texas tomorrow (Friday) evening, bringing a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms. There is a chance of discrete thunderstorms ahead of the line, which are usually more severe; however, the best chance for those storms is east of the immediate DFW Metroplex. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms appears likely, though, during the evening hours of Friday. Overall, you can expect heavy rain and possibly strong weather between the hours of 12PM and 5PM tomorrow.
Temperatures will tank after the cold front moves through. By Saturday morning, temperatures may dip down into the low 30’s. Excess moisture may lead to some snow flurries in the immediate DFW Metroplex, although the best chance of snow is north along the Red River. The National Weather Service says accumulations are not likely, although areas north of Highway 380 could see some snow on the ground.
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood WATCH, including Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, and areas northeast, from 12PM Friday to 3AM Saturday. 2-4 inches of rain is forecasted with higher amounts possible.
