UPDATE

Chance for snow arrives Thursday afternoon


Winter could make a return to Wise County Thursday afternoon.
After a seasonably warm day Wednesday, a strong cold front will arrive in Thursday morning with 25 to 30 mph winds. Moisture will follow in the afternoon after temperatures drop in the mid to low 30s, bringing a slight chance for sleet and snow.
“The strong winds will be the main story,” said Mark Fox, meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth. “During the afternoon, a band of light snow and sleet could move through between 3 and 6 p.m. We’re not expecting much accumulation or travel problems because the system will be move through so fast.”
The wintry precipitation could cause a few issues on bridges and overpasses.
After the front arrives, temperatures will remain cool through the upcoming weekend. The high Saturday is expected to be in the high 30s.
Another round of wintry weather could hit the area Monday evening with another system arriving and low temperatures in the 20s. Fox said his office will be monitoring the developing system. The forecast currently calls for a 20 percent chance of precipitation Monday night.
