NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – North Texas starts off cold Wednesday morning, so grab those heavy winter coats and boots. Wind chills in the mid to upper 20s continue through 10:00 am, with afternoon temperatures only climbing in the upper 40s. Our day features a good deal of sunshine followed by increasing clouds late this afternoon.
The clouds are due to the low pressure system CBS 11 Meteorologists have been watching all week. No big changes in the forecast for late afternoon / evening. We still have dry air in place at the surface so radar may be a bit deceiving later today, in that not all of the precipitation on it will be reaching the ground.

It is going to take some time for the air to saturate in order for precipitation to reach the surface. Northwest locations will see light rain transition to light snow, with a dusting of snow possible northwest of a line from Bowie to Jacksboro. The metroplex will likely only see some scattered sprinkles or light rain.
