    ...winter weather advisory in effect from 10 am this morning to
    9 am cst monday...
    ...winter storm watch no longer in effect...

    The national weather service in fort worth has issued a winter
    weather advisory for snow today and freezing drizzle tonight...which
    is in effect from 10 am this morning to 9 am cst monday. The
    winter storm watch for heavy snow is no longer in effect.

    Widespread rainfall across north texas is expected to slowly
    transition over to snow for areas generally along and northeast of
    a decatur to granbury to palestine line today. This transition is
    expected to occur from northeast to southwest across the advisory
    area. Rain may transition to snow as early as 10 am cst near the
    paris area. Precipitation is expected to transition to snowfall
    across the metroplex after noon today. The transition to snowfall
    is expected to occur near the far southwestern boundary of the
    advisory by 3 pm this afternoon.

    Areas near and northeast of greenville are expected to see the
    heaviest snowfall totals with 3 to 4 inches of snow expected.
    South of interstate 20 and east of interstate 35 anywhere from 2
    to 4 inches of snowfall is expected to occur. Within the
    metroplex...areas west of interstate 35 will likely see 1 to 2
    inches of snowfall while areas to the east may see 1 to 3 inches
    of snowfall. The remainder of the advisory area is expected to see
    around 1 inch of snowfall. Snowfall amounts may vary substantially
    depending on when the transition from rain to snow occurs across
    north texas.

    Snowfall will end across the area from southwest to northeast late
    sunday afternoon. There is expected to be a brief break from
    precipitation sunday evening. Freezing drizzle is expected to
    start to develop after midnight sunday night across the advisory
    area. Freezing drizzle may be heaviest around sunrise which could
    potentially have serious impacts on the morning commute monday
    morning. Motorists are encouraged to monitor the latest weather
    conditions before heading out to work on monday. Plan to take
    extra time to reach your destination if traveling monday morning.

    A winter weather advisory means that periods of winter
    precipitation may cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
    slippery roads and plan on some travel delays.
