There’s been talk on the streets of another ice event for Dallas this weekend, but that looks unlikely.
Some computer projections were pointing to that late last week, but due caution is always advised to users of that information, because it’s often subject to change when you are looking out a whole week.
So, the trends for this week have been much warmer with highs in the 50s and 60s through the first half of the weekend, and cooling down the second half.
If there were to be any winter precip., it would probably be early next week; but even then we’re talking a fairly low probability of that as the air looks marginally cold enough.
The long-range pattern finishing out 2013 does show several Canadian fronts moving through so theoretically any one of them could provide enough cold air for ice and snow. This means that we cannot dismiss a chance of frozen precipitation for the Metroplex out of hand, but right now it looks like:
The rest of the week before Christmas will be mild for Dallas;
A wet system coming in Dec 22-23 will likely produce a cold rain, and if it did snow it would melt off before Christmas.
