Winter Weather Advisory For Dallas-Fort Worth

8:30 AM CST | January 11, 2018

A strong cold front is moving into western North Texas right now. The temperature in Graham is 44*F behind the front, but ahead of the front, DFW Airport is 57*F. As the cold front moves through your area today, expect strong northwest winds. A band or two of brief but moderate snowfall could reduce visibilities across parts of North Texas this afternoon and early evening. The area of concern is from the Dallas-Fort Worth metro and points north and west. Any accumulations should be light (a dusting to an inch) and probably localized. The main concern is reduced visibilities, which is why the National Weather Service went ahead and issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the above area.

The greatest accumulations will likely be northwest of the metroplex, but again, it will depend on where these heavier bands set up later today. Not everyone in the advisory area is likely to see accumulations. The main impact will be reduced visibilities due to strong winds. I also wanted to share imagery from NOAA's new GOES-16 satellite. Check out the view this morning! It is incredible how far satellite has come over the years. You can get the latest on the blog and Facebook page!
