Don't Get Your Hopes Up For Snow

Temperatures continue to drop as a deep freeze settles into North Texas, but Wednesday's snowfall isn't expected to be repeated, meteorologist David Finfrock said Thursday.  

A winter storm watch was in effect until Friday evening along the Texas coast, and snow is expected in Houston, but it's not likely that North Texas will get much, he said. 

"The winter weather advisory does extend as far north as Comanche and Hamilton Counties, but for the Metroplex, probably just a few flurries of snow grains. I don't think we'll see anything significant here, but temps will be dropping into the 20s," Finfrock said.

Snow was falling out in west Texas Thursday night in Lubbock and Plainview in a system that was drifting toward the southwest, where a winter storm warning predicted 3 to 6 inches of snow.

Temperatures were expected to continue to fall in North Texas, Finfrock said. He said Thursday morning was the coldest morning of the system. Thursday night was even colder, and Friday night is expected to be colder still.

An overnight freeze Thursday left some patches of ice on the roads, creating a more slippery morning commute.

North Texans woke up Wednesday morning to find snowflakes falling across the Metroplex. Dallas Love Field officially reported 0.2 inches of snow, and Fort Worth Alliance reported 0.3 inches. The heaviest snow fell to the north and west of the Metroplex.
