The system that was to bring snow to North Texas fell apart just as it reached the Metroplex early Friday, but not before it dropped an inch or two in areas to the southwest, including Stephenville.

At 7:30 a.m., it seemed unlikely that Tarrant County would see any flakes, said Ted Ryan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

"Maybe they got a few flakes in far west Fort Worth, but the system ran into dry air here in the Metroplex and just fell apart," Ryan said. "And it looks like it should stay dry here the rest of the day."

Snowflakes did fall in Granbury, but the heavier snow was reported in areas southwest of there, he said. Two to four inches may have fallen in some places, he said.

The forecasted high temperature today is 46. Tarrant County has a chance of light rain overnight and could possibly see a few wet snowflakes, he said.

"But either way, it's not going to be a big issue," Ryan said.
