   Mesoscale Discussion 0124
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0350 PM CST Wed Feb 01 2023

   Areas affected...Portions of northern Texas

   Concerning...Freezing rain 

   Valid 012150Z - 020045Z

   SUMMARY...Light to occasionally moderate freezing rain expected to
   continue into the evening across portions of northern Texas.

   DISCUSSION...A broad stratiform precipitation shield continues to
   spread into northern Texas. Surface temperatures remain in the mid
   to upper 20s which is leading to ice accretion. Most notably,
   Abilene and Mineral Wells received 0.05" ice accretion between
   20-21Z according to ASOS observations. Expect similar accretion
   rates across northern Texas into the evening. The HRRR continues to
   show heavier precipitation and more banded structures through the
   Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex this evening which may lead to more
   significant icing. However, current radar trends would suggest the
   maximum may be north and west of the Metroplex. Nonetheless,
   impactful icing is expected across much of northern Texas for the
   remainder of the afternoon and into the evening.
