You may hear DCW refer to the 'coverage area' of our page. So, what does it actually mean, and when do certain areas receive coverage from the page? Here's the full explanation.
Denton County Weather is a page meant to not just cover Denton County, but surrounding counties as well. This is why our name can be somewhat tricky and misleading, as we do cover almost all of DFW, even though we call our page 'Denton County Weather'. I have had thoughts about changing this name for a while to something else that would include most of DFW, but I have not found a good name to replace the current name with.
To get back to the main story, WHO do we cover for all types of weather?
Yellow Shading - All 7-day forecasts and hourly forecasts are based out of the Yellow-shading, Denton County. More specifically, the temperatures are based for Argyle/Flower Mound, TX.
Red Shading - The red shading refers to the area that we cover significantly during severe weather. These counties are also included in our % coverage predictions for precipitation and severe weather when making a prediction.
Purple Shading - This shading is for ALL severe weather. We will post alerts on our page whenever severe weather is present in ANY of those outlying areas. We will sometimes post if there are warnings 1 county outside of the Purple shading. These areas are occasionally posted about on DCW media.
No Shading - Unless there is some sort of tornado, large hail, or high damaging wind event, we usually won't post about areas with no shading. We do occasionally, but usually not specifically, unless there is severe weather.
Obviously, we do cover hurricanes and other systems that may not affect our area, but are a bigger headline. Even if you aren't in a shading, we still try to help you out with any type of weather that comes your way!
