Snowflakes in North Texas? There's a chance

DALLAS - Yes, it's true. The National Weather Service says there's a slight chance for sleet or snow through Wednesday evening. 

"Don't be surprised to see some snowflakes or sleet pellets as far north as the metroplex," read a graphic posted on NWS Fort Worth Twitter page

An overnight disturbance brings a chance for scattered light rain and even a few sleet pellets and snowflakes! The best chance for a wintry mix will be southwest of DFW.

Freezing temperatures will exist above the surface, causing the wintry mix, but surface and ground temperatures will be too warm, above freezing, to create any winter wonderland. That's why we could *see* a wintry mix, but we're *not* anticipating travel problems or accumulation.

The National Weather Service says if it happens, it would be the earliest sleet/snow event for the Dallas-Fort Worth area since Nov. 13, 2014.

The National Weather Service said Waco also has a slight chance for sleet/snow, which would be the earliest in that area since Nov. 23, 2013. 

"Temperatures for the next two days are expected to stay above 32 degrees in almost all areas," read a tweet from NWS Fort Worth. "So, despite some snowflakes or sleet mixed with rain, impacts are expected to remain low."
