Winter storm watches (green) are in effect for Wednesday for much of the Northeast as a coastal storm moves up.
A winter weather advisory has been issued for Denton, Collin, Fanin, Palo Pinto and Parker, Montague, Cooke, Grayson, Jack and Wise counties from 3 p.m. until midnight. "A messy mix of snow, sleet, and rain is expected". A quarter of an inch or more of ice is expected to accumulate.
The mountains will see a different start to Monday with gusty winds and an increase in snow showers. By night time, it will be heavier and pack on a few inches.
Friday will bring another chance of snow with a high near 33 degrees and a low around 9 degrees.
An even chance of rain and/or snow is projected for the weekend. With snowfall rates up to an inch per hour, visibility will also be greatly reduced.
In southeast Missouri through Southern Illinois, freezing rain and some sleet should begin late Tuesday afternoon into the evening. Monday's high is expected to be 48 degrees with an overnight low of 16 degrees, Danielsen said.
"Be prepared for slippery roads", meteorologists state in the advisory. The line could move more to the north, meaning more rain, or more to the south, meaning more ice potential, the closer the storm gets.
In the Kansas City area, daytime snowfall could be less than 1 inch, after 4 p.m.
He predicted slick driving with all the week's snow events and said frigid temperatures, lower than normal for this time of year, won't help.
