Parts Of North Texas Could See Sleet And Possibly Snow As Cold Front Moves In

National Weather Service in Fort Worth
Strong north winds Thursday behind a cold front combined with temperatures falling into the 30s will result in wind chills in the teens and lower 20s across much of North Texas by late this afternoon and evening.

Update, 3:45 p.m. You might have heard some talk about a certain four-letter word.

There is a chance of light sleet and possibly snow moving into the western and northwestern parts of Dallas-Fort Worth in the next few hours, the National Weather Service in Fort Worth says.

Temperatures remain above freezing, so any precipitation likely won't accumulate.

A strong cold front has sent the mild temperatures from this morning into the 40s and 30s across the region this afternoon. Gusty north winds will make it feel like it's in the lower 20s by late afternoon.

Take precautions

Frigid temperatures will be hanging out through the weekend. The weather service advises folks to protect pipes, people, plants and pets — the Four P's, if you will.
