This is the latest forecast from the National Weather Service in Fort Worth for later this week. Heavy Rainfall is the main concern at this time from Central Texas through Northeast/East Texas. Isolated Severe Storms may also occur, but it depends on the track of the system and how far south the Arctic airmass reaches. Right now, the southern extent of wintry precipitation in the late week forecast is from about Wichita Falls, to Haskell, to Midland. At least a brief period of freezing rain, sleet, or snow is in the forecast along and north of this line. The potential for impacts is greatest from the Texas Panhandle into parts of West Texas and far Northwest Texas.
The shallow, Arctic airmass will push into the state on Thursday, as the system moves into California/Northwest Mexico. Until then, confidence in the forecast is lower than normal. Adjustments to the forecast can be expected over the next several days.
