Fox Texoma Weather

Fox Forecast

Time to defrost!
7:00 a.m. Thursday 5 March 2015

A significant amount of snow fell overnight for us and in areas accumulations did exceed over 3 inches. Roads, bridges and over passes are covered but at least the snow that fell is dry snow so this is a little bit easier to drive on. Be cautious though as underneath this snow is a layer of ice from the freezing rain and sleet we received before the snow. For our N TX counties, there is still a winter storm warning in effect but this will expire at noon today, the same time that we will lift our weather alert. As this system clears the area, we are still holding it as a weather alert morning due to the snow and ice on the roads and wind chills ranging from 10 to 20 degrees this afternoon. One positive note that I have for today is that we do expect sunny skies as high pressure is now taking over so this will help our temperatures inch above freezing this afternoon as highs are expected to make it to the mid to upper 30s. This should help melt some of the snow and ice, but as we refreeze overnight what is left on the roads will refreeze too. No worries on any more precipitation coming our way, not at least for a full week now as the high pressure will really dominate our conditions. Temperatures will warm up day by day and sunshine will be bountiful. The southerly winds return on Friday, then over the weekend we warm into the 50s with mostly sunny skies. Monday looks to finally make it back to the 60s where we should be for March.

Tonight: Lows around 21 with mostly clear skies
Friday: Sunny… 21/45
Saturday: Mostly Sunny… 26/55
Sunday: Partly Cloudy… 34/58
Monday: Mostly Sunny… 38/60
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny… 38/64
Wednesday: Sunny… 40/66

Stay safe on the roads!
