Rain and snow forecast for Jan. 4 and weekend

Clock Tower snow

The Denton and North Texas weather forecast calls for a chance of snow and a 20 percent likelihood of rain Jan. 4.

The forecast predicts a high temperature of 38, clouds and the possibility of snow 10 days after a storm gave North Texas a rare white Christmas. 

Be sure to watch Dallas-Fort Worth television and media, and to check the UNT website home page to learn if weather is affecting UNT operations and classes.

Winter weather, ice and snow often result in delayed beginnings for the work day and for classes, or for campus closure. To be notified about weather affecting operations or other safety and security information, be sure your information is up-to-date with Eagle Alert, the university’s emergency warning system and the city of Denton Code Red system.

Eagle Alert does not send weather warnings or forecasts, but allows administrators to contact the campus community when weather affects university operations. The system sends recorded voice messages to land line and cell phones of faculty, staff and students. Text or SMS (Short Message Service) messages will be sent to cell phone numbers, if added to contact information.

North Texas was spared snow and ice in 2012. But in 2011, record-setting cold temperatures and ice closed the campus for five days in February. The same severe weather dampened the spirits of professional football fans in the area for Super Bowl XLV played Feb. 6, 2011 at Cowboys Stadium.

Texas experienced its greatest amount of snow in a single storm in February 1956, according to the Texas Almanac, published by the Texas State Historical Association which is headquartered at UNT. The Panhandle towns of Hale Center and Plainview set records for snowfall – 24 inches in 24 hours – and for snow on the ground – 33 inches.

The greatest amount of seasonal snow fell in 1923-24 on the Hartley County town of Romero, also in the Panhandle. Romero was buried under 65 inches of snow, which must have been traumatic, because the town no longer exists.
