There is snow in the forecast for North Texas.

No, not "Snowmageddon" — just a dusting.

The white powder comes as temperatures fall into the teens, making Thursday the coldest morning of the week.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Collin, Denton, Wise, Fannin, Grayson, Cooke, Parker and Erath counties from 3 a.m. to noon on Thursday, when the mercury will be stuck in the 20s across the region. Wind chill readings will dip as low as -3 degrees.

There should be a large area of light snow approaching North Texas by Thursday morning, but it will be in the collapsing stage, so maybe a few flurries for about 40 percent of us. The snow band should pass over the Dallas-Fort Worth area between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.

No ice is expected to accompany this event; it will be cold enough to be snow-only.

A sprinkle, sleet pellet, or flurry will also possible late Friday, but still looks to be a real yawner.

Next Tuesday is the day to watch for the next possible non-yawning weather event.
