THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF NORTH CENTRAL
TEXAS...NORTHEAST TEXAS AND SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

A WINTRY MIX OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE
SOUTHEAST FROM A LINE FROM BRECKENRIDGE TO DECATUR TO GAINESVILLE
THIS AFTERNOON. THIS WILL SPREAD SOUTHWARD AND AFFECT ALL OF NORTH
AND CENTRAL TEXAS THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AS ARCTIC AIR
DEEPENS ACROSS THE REGION.

FOR AREAS ALONG A LINE FROM BRECKENRIDGE TO DECATUR TO
GAINESVILLE...SNOW MAY MIX IN WITH THE SLEET BY LATE THIS EVENING.
THE COMBINATION OF ICE...SLEET...AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE
LIKELY TO LEAD TO SOME HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS...AND A WINTER
STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR THESE LOCATIONS AS A RESULT.

FURTHER SOUTHEAST...FOR AREAS ALONG A COMANCHE TO DALLAS TO PARIS
LINE...ICE...SLEET AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE
HIGHER. IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE MORE WIDESPREAD...AND A WINTER
STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR THESE AREAS AS WELL. HAZARDOUS
DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE VERY LIKELY.

HOWEVER...FOR AREAS ALONG A LAMPASAS...TO WACO...TO ATHENS
LINE...HIGHER ICE ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE...AND A WINTER
STORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR THESE AREAS AS WELL. HIGHER ICE
AMOUNTS COULD PUT ADDED STRESS ON THE POWER LINES...SO WIDESPREAD
POWER OUTAGES ARE POSSIBLE IN THESE AREAS...AS WELL AS HAZARDOUS
TRAVEL.

NORTH WINDS ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO INCREASE IN INTENSITY ACROSS THE
REGION TO 25 TO 30 MPH BY THIS EVENING...GUSTING TO 40 MPH AT
TIMES. THESE STRONG WINDS MAY EXACERBATE DANGEROUS DRIVING
CONDITIONS FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES...ESPECIALLY THOSE TRAVELING
ALONG WEST TO EAST ORIENTED ROADS. THESE STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS
COUPLED WITH THE POTENTIAL ICE ACCUMULATION MAY CAUSE ISSUES FOR
POWER LINES AS EARLY AS TONIGHT ACROSS THE REGION.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

WINTRY PRECIPITATION IS GENERALLY EXPECTED TO END FROM NORTHWEST
TO SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION EARLY THURSDAY MORNING.
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW FREEZING HOWEVER...SO
ANY ICY ROADWAYS WILL LIKELY REMAIN ICE OR SNOW COVERED THROUGH
THURSDAY MORNING. SKIES ARE EXPECTED TO CLEAR AND TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED TO WARM THURSDAY AFTERNOON...AND SNOW AND ICE WILL BEGIN
TO MELT OFF ROADS THEREAFTER.
