Snow hits north Texas, moving west, and the latest snow showers could not end until Friday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
Fort Worth Forney, Denton Duncanville, and most points in the meantime, residents and visitors are Super Bowl-boot deep in some of the worst winter weather to hit the area of memory.
“This is Pittsburgh weather,” said Tricia Caswell, shopping at a Target in Frisco. She arrived in town Thursday to Sunday of Super Bowl XLV at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington (where, yes, the roof is closed).
“We were hoping for a little vacation from the cold,” she said.
Not before Saturday at the earliest, Tricia. The temperature should not rise above freezing until then, when it could reach 40 years.
The latest forecast kickoff is about 40, with moderate winds. All or most of the snow and ice-clogged roads and highways must be melted by then.
But the way this week opted for the Super Bowl partygoers and planners, would be terribly surprised if a tidal wave hit us instead.
Snow this morning – far worse than forecasters had predicted that Thursday night – came after three days of cold, ice storms, treacherous roads, yet cuts, plant closings and mass transit failures common. The snowfall started in most areas around midnight, moving from south to north across the region. The totals vary greatly but are generally farther east. In Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport, the snowfall by official sunrise was 1.8 inches. But people close to Love Field reported receiving more than 4 inches in Richardson, 5 inches, and Kaufman, about 8 inches.
