A dreary Monday forecast includes a high of around 35 degrees with winds of 10-15 mph and a chance of freezing rain and sleet.
The National Weather Service’s Fort Worth office issued a Special Weather Statement for all of North Texas, including Seagoville, at 4:21 a.m. Friday morning.
The bulletin is listed below:
AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE OVER NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS FROM SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY BRINGING A CHANCE OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE REGION.
PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION FROM WEST TO EAST SUNDAY EVENING. PRECIPITATION MAY START OUT IN LIQUID FORM…HOWEVER AS TEMPERATURES DROP SUNDAY EVENING AND OVERNIGHT…RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE OVER TO FREEZING RAIN OR SLEET FOR PARTS OF THE REGION. WHEREVER TEMPERATURES ARE BELOW FREEZING…FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE. THE FREEZING LINE IS EXPECTED TO EXIST SOMEWHERE ACROSS NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS DURING THIS EVENT…COMPLICATING THE FORECAST.
AT THIS TIME…LOCATIONS ALONG AND NORTHWEST OF A LINE FROM COMANCHE TO DALLAS TO BONHAM ARE THE MOST LIKELY TO SEE SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES WHILE PRECIPITATION IS FALLING…HOWEVER CONFIDENCE IN THE EXACT POSITION OF THE FREEZING LINE IS SOMEWHAT LOW AT THIS TIME. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS ARE SUPPORTIVE OF ICE AND SLEET ACCUMULATIONS THAT COULD CAUSE TRAVEL AND POWER PROBLEMS AS EARLY AS MONDAY MORNING IF TEMPERATURES ARE COLD ENOUGH. AS A RESULT…THIS WINTER STORM OUTLOOK IS BEING ISSUED TO HIGHLIGHT THE POTENTIAL FOR TRAVEL AND POWER DISRUPTIONS FROM LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING.
