Winter weather possible tonight through sunrise Saturday


Information provided by OEP Director Mary Jones.

A light mix of rain, sleet, and snow is possible beginning this evening across portions of East Texas and then spreading east-northeast into Northern Louisiana and Southern Arkansas.

Timing and Overview:

Rain will develop by late this afternoon across Central and East Texas. As temperatures fall after sunset, the rain will likely transition into a light wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow as it spreads northeast into Northeast Texas and portions of Southern Arkansas and Northern Louisiana. The precipitation should end around sunrise Saturday morning. Temperatures will warm back into the 40s during the day Saturday, so any accumulations that occur will melt.

Four State Impacts:

Expected Accumulations:  Most locations will only see trace accumulations of snow/sleet, mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces. However, a few locations could experience accumulations up to one tenth of an inch.

Impacts:  A few slick spots will be possible on elevated roads, such as bridges and overpasses, especially where the higher accumulations occur.
