February Comes Towards Its End With Snow On The Menu Again For North Texas

What you are looking at here is what my new computer based weather monitoring device generates when I click on it to get me some weather info.

Yesterday I replaced my previous computer based weather monitoring device, called WeatherFox, because the Fox had become erratic, days out of sync, and thus worthless.

Even better computer based weather monitoring comes to me via Facebook and my favorite Texas Weatherman, John Basham.

This morning's Facebook John Basham Storm Spotter report is indicating we are in for some winter fun today in North Texas.....

WINTER WEATHER UPDATE 640 AM CST FRI FEB 27 2015 - NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS - INCLUDING: THE DALLAS FORT WORTH METROPLEX. A large area of light to moderate SNOW is rapidly approaching Western North Texas at this time. Doppler Radar and surface reports indicate the leading edge of snow is in Jack, Parker, & Hood Counties at this time. This areas of snow will continue to move East-Northeast across the Dallas/Fort Worth metro through the morning. With temperatures below freezing and evaporative cooling from the snowfall, widespread totals of 1" to 4" of snowfall can be expected in the metroplex. Areas of greatest risk for accumulation are along and North of the Interstate 30 corridor. Temperatures will have to fight to climb to the freezing mark today allowing for any snow that falls to accumulate readily and then re-freeze Friday night when more snow and freezing drizzle is expected. Road conditions are fine this morning across the metroplex, but will likely be deteriorating by noon. This will be especially true North of Interstate 30 and West of Interstate 35 where temperatures will struggle to get out of the upper 20's. Please be careful on area roadways and if conditions begin to worsen adjustments to your schedule may be necessary, especially if you have children who may wind up in an early release from school today. THIS IS NOT A NWS PRODUCT. Meteorologist John Austin Basham Storm Spotter METOPS,
