It will be cold, windy, and wet across North Texas on Tuesday, with a Winter Weather Advisory issued for areas north and west of the immediate Dallas-Fort Worth area.
11:22 UPDATE: Moderate rain will continue across all of North Texas through the early afternoon. We'll see a slow end to this from Southwest to Northeast through early afternoon. A break in the precipitation late afternoon, and then wrap-around moisture will produce a rain/snow mix and all snow along and north of Interstate 30 this evening. Some light accumulations are possible on grassy surfaces in DFW, and one to three inches are possible in the winter weather advisory area along Highway 380 and points north and west of 35W.

We're waking up this morning to widespread moderate to heavy rain. Nothing is severe. This pattern will continue through the morning and into the early afternoon hours... temperatures will slowly fall into the upper 30s by late this afternoon.
The heaviest rain this morning is falling north of DFW. Another wave of heavy rain will develop to our west after 9:00 a.m. and spread across the area through 2:00 p.m.. rainfall totals will range between 1 inch and 1 1/2 in.
We'll get a few hours break in the precipitation into the late afternoon hours and then an area of snow will develop behind the cold front and on the back side of the surface low between 6:00 p.m. and midnight tonight. Therefore, a winter weather advisory will be in effect late this afternoon through midnight for minor accumulations on elevated objects. This will occur mainly along and north of Highway 380, with the greatest accumulations, maybe up to 2 in, stretching from McKinney to North Fort Worth to Weatherford and points north towards the Red River. Roads should not be impacted, but a different story along the Red River counties late this evening and areas west of a Decatur to Mineral Wells line. This is where some slick spots will develop on bridges and overpasses.
**Please note, your commute into work and your commute home today will be snow-free across the metroplex**
Temperatures will fall into the low to mid 30s by daybreak tomorrow, with some slick spots on bridges and overpasses in the advisory areas. Clouds will be slow to move out tomorrow with high temperatures in the mid 40s.
Thursday and Friday look nice with highs and the low 50s Thursday, near 60 on Friday, and low 60s on Saturday with a strong gusty southerly wind.
Our next cold front is due to arrive just after midnight into Sunday morning. Temperatures will be in the mid 50s early and fall into the 30s by daybreak. A north wind will gust to 35mph. Sunny, windy and cold through the day with highs in the low 40s.
Monday's weather will be cloudy with a slight chance of some precipitation. Stay tuned on that forecast! Highs will kiss the 40 degree mark.
Don't sweat this storm system that'll move through the area today you'll be fine to and from work today, but I would stay home this evening if you live along and north of Highway 380 and out west of 35W. This is where some light accumulations of snow are possible on elevated objects but again, the main roads should stay fine, except along the Red River and off to the west towards Hwy 281.
