[ARCHIVED] TC Weather Alert: Winter Front Incoming

2022.02.01 Winter Weather Storm PSD

Trophy Club, TX (January 31, 2022) – For the first time this winter season, the forecast is calling for significant ice and snow across much of North Texas.  It will begin with an arctic cold front that will move in from the NW to SE during the day Wednesday, February 02, 2022, resulting in the possibility of freezing rain, sleet and possibly snow.

Though specific amounts of the rain/ice/snow cannot be predicated as of yet, the weather front will likely bring some hazardous travel conditions Wednesday night into the day Thursday for Trophy Club.

Here are some suggestions for things you should do before the weather arrives:

SuppliesEnsure you have extra food/water, medications, and pet supplies on hand.
GeneratorIf you have a generator, grab a few gallons of gas. If the power goes out at your house, it's probably out at the gas station down the street.
ElderlyCheck on your neighbors. Elderly and shut-ins are vulnerable during these weather events. Make the phone call, swing by, and ask them if they need anything. 
DrivingDrive carefully. Be mindful that the roads may be wet and icy; make sure your windshield is clear as well as your roof. Slow down at intersections. 

Pets should NOT be left outside for any length of time.

RadioFollow your local radio, TV, media outlets for the latest information and weather updates.
PipesPrevent frozen pipes by opening kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warmer air to circulate the plumbing. If the pipes do freeze: keep the faucet open (Running water through the pipe will help melt ice in the pipes).

The amount of snow that could accumulate in any given area will be determined by when the transition from freezing rain and sleet over to snow occurs Wednesday night.  As of now, it looks like the majority of the precipitation for the DFW area will be rain/freezing rain/sleet but with snow also possible as the winter storm winds down.

Areas to the North and West of the immediate DFW area will make the transition to snow much faster and thus more significant snow amounts can be expected there. Of course, a faster-than-anticipated transition from ice to snow here in the heart of the Metroplex will increase the snow accumulation totals locally.

Again, exact forecast amounts of ice and snow across North Texas are unavailable at this time. PLEASE FOLLOW LOCAL NEWS AND WEATHER OUTLETS for the most up to date information available.

If you have any questions, please contact the Trophy Club Fire Station (682) 237-2940. You can also call the 24-Hour Non-Emergency: 972-434-5500, option 9.

If you have an emergency, please call 911.  Calls to 911or the non-emergency number go to the Denton County Sheriff's Department, which is the dispatch for Trophy Club Fire and Police Departments.
