... Freezing rain is likely Friday and Saturday across portions of
the Texas South Plains region...
Abundant moisture lifting over a cold Canadian airmass will
result in a chance for freezing rain from early Friday morning
through Saturday across the Southern Plains of West Texas.
Initially the greatest freezing rain chances will be across the
southern Texas Panhandle into the northern South Plains early
Friday... with a cold rain expected further south. However... the
sub-freezing temperatures may expand southward through Friday and
Friday night... bringing the risk of icing further south through
much of the South Plains and perhaps even into portions of the
rolling plains. Depending on how far temperatures can drop...
significant icing of roads... trees... and utility wires could
occur. Uncertainties regarding how far south the risk of icing
will extend as well as how much ice may accumulate are relatively
high. Regardless... those planning travel or outdoor activities
this Holiday weekend will want to follow the latest forecast and
be prepared for possible watches... advisories and warnings... and
adjust travel plans accordingly.
