..a cold and wet Holiday weekend expected across west central

What you need to know...

1. Moderate to heavy rainfall will be widespread across west
central Texas... Friday through Sunday. Rainfall totals of 2 to 5
inches will be possible and may cause localized flooding and
hazardous driving conditions... especially in urban and other poor
drainage areas.

2. A strong cold front will move across the area late Thursday
night and early Friday. Temperatures are forecast to fall
throughout the day... eventually falling into the lower to mid 30s
across much of the area. Highs on Saturday will remain in the
30s. There is a potential of freezing rain as far south as
Haskell... Anson... and Sweetwater Friday night into Saturday
morning. However... with temperatures forecast to hover near the
freezing mark... significant ice accumulations are not anticipated
at this time. Light ice accumulations may occur on trees, power
lines, and grassy surfaces.

3. Motorists traveling north and west into the Panhandle and
South Plains will see a greater chance for icy conditions for
Friday night and Saturday. If you have travel plans... you are
encouraged to check on the latest conditions and forecasts before
you leave.

a combination of a potent upper level storm system... a strong cold
front moving into the area... and the remnants of Hurricane Sandra
in the eastern Pacific Ocean will combine to produce a cold and
wet period for west central Texas. The cold front arrives late
Thursday night and Friday morning... with temperatures falling
through the afternoon. Finally... the remnants of Hurricane Sandra
move across the area on Saturday... with widespread rainfall
likely. By the time the rain ends Sunday... many portions of west
central Texas will have seen 2 to 5 inches of rainfall with
isolated higher totals.

A temperature shift of even a few degrees could make a significant
change in the potential for any freezing rain across the area. A
few degrees warmer would end the threat completely... while a few
degrees colder would increase potential for icing across the Big
Country and northern Concho Valley. The latest forecasts and
conditions should be closely monitored as we get closer to the
