Thanksgiving Day Travel Forecast

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Unfortunately, there's a lot going on in the weather over the next few days. A powerful storm system will make its way slowly through the region with a threat for flooding rainfall for North Texas -- and the possibility for significant icing across west and northwest Texas, the Texas Panhandle, and western Oklahoma.

We will see areas of rain develop during the day today. A few thunderstorms will also be possible, but no severe weather.

Thanksgiving Travel Forecast

Today's temperatures will top out in the lower 70s. The rain will increase in coverage and intensity Thursday night and Friday morning as the strong cold front pushes south.

Temperatures will fall Friday, going from around 60 degress in the morning back into the 40s for the afternoon.

A Flash Flood WATCH is in effect for a large part of North Texas through Sunday morning. Widespread rain totals of 3-5 inches can be expected. Isolated totals in excess of 6 inches will also be possible.

If you are traveling to or from the west and northwest parts of the region, please pay extra close attention to the weather. An Ice Storm WARNING is in effect for the South Plains, western Oklahoma, parts of northwest Texas, and a large part of the Texas Panhandle through Saturday.

Some significant icing (more than half an inch of freezing rain) will be possible. This will cause extremely hazardous road conditions tonight through Saturday morning. Farther northwest, a Winter Storm WARNING is in effect for east and northeast New Mexico and northwest parts of the Texas Panhandle.
