...WINTER WEATHER POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING...

RAIN WILL MIX WITH AND THEN CHANGEOVER TO A WINTRY MIX...MOST
LIKELY TO BE SLEET...ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION BY THE AFTERNOON
OR EVENING HOURS WEDNESDAY. PRECIPITATION SHOULD COME TO AN END BY
THURSDAY AFTERNOON AS THE UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM MOVES EAST OF THE
REGION.

* LOCATION...THE AREAS MOST LIKELY TO SEE ACCUMULATIONS OF ICE OR
  SLEET APPROACHING ONE HALF INCH ARE THOSE ALONG AND SOUTHEAST OF
  A LINE FROM LAMPASAS TO ATHENS. HOWEVER...ALL OF NORTH AND
  CENTRAL TEXAS IS LIKELY TO SEE AT LEAST SOME LIGHT WINTRY
  PRECIPITATION DURING THIS EVENT.

* TIMING...WE EXPECT RAIN TO TRANSITION OVER TO A WINTRY MIX
  BEGINNING ALONG THE RED RIVER AROUND MID-MORNING WEDNESDAY
  ...ACROSS THE METROPLEX SHORTLY AFTER MIDDAY AND AROUND
  WACO/KILLEEN/PALESTINE BY SUNSET.

* PRECIPITATION TYPE...MAINLY SLEET...WITH SOME SNOW AND FREEZING
  RAIN POSSIBLE.

* ACCUMULATION AND IMPACTS...ACCUMULATIONS REMAIN UNCERTAIN AT
  THIS TIME...BUT WITH TEMPERATURES DROPPING BELOW FREEZING DURING
  THE AFTERNOON IT WOULD TAKE LITTLE TO PRODUCE DETERIORATING ROAD
  CONDITIONS AND SOME TRAVEL DELAYS BY WEDNESDAY EVENING.
  HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS ARE MOST LIKELY ALONG AND SOUTHEAST
  OF A LINE FROM LAMPASAS TO ATHENS AT THIS TIME.

* ALTERNATE SCENARIOS...THE AMOUNT AND DURATION OF WINTRY
  PRECIPITATION DEPEND ON HOW FAST COLD AIR MOVES INTO PLACE ON
  WEDNESDAY...THE EARLIER THE COLD AIR IS HERE...THE MORE WINTRY
  PRECIPITATION WE CAN EXPECT. AREAS MOST LIKELY TO BE IMPACTED
  MAY CHANGE IN LATER FORECASTS AND THE TIMING OF THE COLD AIR
  INTO THE REGION IS THE PRIMARY FACTOR LIMITING CONFIDENCE IN HOW
  MUCH AND HOW LONG WINTRY PRECIPITATION WILL FALL DURING THIS
  EVENT.

PLEASE MONITOR FUTURE FORECASTS REGARDING THE POTENTIAL FOR
WINTER WEATHER ACROSS NORTH TEXAS WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
