Depending on the timing of the front, the Monday evening commute could be a little slick for parts of North Texas. Right now, that risk is higher NORTH of DFW near the Red River. However, if you have any plans after 7 p.m., a transition to a wintry mix is likely during that timeframe. Eventually, late Monday night, we’ll see a transition to mainly light snow. That could linger through Tuesday morning. Any snow will end from north to south during the morning hours on Tuesday. A slow and slick commute for parts of North Texas is likely.
BEHIND THE FRONT:
As of Sunday morning, we still have a chance for wintry weather across North Texas on Monday night into Tuesday morning.
A shot of arctic air moves into the area Monday afternoon and evening. Ahead of this strong cold front, light rain is possible between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Monday. The arctic air will continue to spill into North Texas and any moisture left behind the front will transition to a wintry mix Monday evening.
Despite the likelihood of us not seeing a significant amount of snow, sleet or ice, travel Monday night and Tuesday morning could still turn very difficult because of how cold it’s going to get. With temperatures crashing quickly into the lower 20s by Tuesday morning, anything that falls Monday night and overnight will create icy conditions.
