It looks like the cold weather is going to stick around for a while.
Will it also bring a little snow and ice to the DFW area?
Forecasters weren’t sure on Wednesday afternoon.
“We’re watching it,” said Lamont Bain, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
One computer model shows an upper level trough bringing a low chance of snow Sunday night, but another model shows the wintry weather completely missing the DFW area.
For now, the forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of winter precipitation Sunday night with a low temperature of 29 climbing into the mid-40s by Monday afternoon.
“It looks like an extremely low probability right now,” Bain said. “We’re not saying there’s going to be a winter storm.”
The frozen stuff is always hard to predict in North Texas, so stay tuned.
Some areas of East Texas, southeast of a line from Hillsboro to Sulphur Springs, also have a slight chance of sleet late Wednesday and early Thursday. But none is expected in the DFW area.
But the cold will stick around.
Lows should be in the upper 20s Thursday with the high reaching only 40 on Thursday and mid-40s on Friday.
