Austin / Travis County and South Central Texas Weather Statement #4
Prepared by UT University/Incident Meteorologist Troy Kimmel
955am CT – Friday / 27 February 2015
… A Few Snow Flakes Possible Over Next Few Hours …
… A Cloudy, Damp, Chilly Weekend Ahead …
At mid morning this morning… a passing upper air disturbance,
which is producing moderate to heavy snow currently in the DFW
area, is moving eastward. It is possible that here.. on the southern
edge of the disturbance.. we could see a few snowflakes mainly in
areas of Williamson and Bell counties to our north.
By later today, as temperatures get a few more degrees above
freezing, the chance of rain will be in the forecast and continue into
much of the weekend with a slow warming trend as an overrunning
It is possible in the overnight and early morning hours tonight and
tomorrow morning, that freezing rain/drizzle could develop over the
adjacent Texas Hill Country and hilly areas northwest of the IH35
corridor. I expect Austin metro temps to remain slightly above freezing
for the overnight hours which should preclude any problems in the Austin
ABIA Interests… please be aware of the deteriorated weather
situation over the DFW/DAL aerodromes. DFW reporting currently
1/2 mile visibility in moderate snow.. DAL reporting 3/4 mile visibility
in light snow. FTW /Fort Worth Meacham reports 1/4 mile visibility
in heavy snow.
Continuing to monitor..
