We’ll be doing bi-hourly updates now that we do have precipitation falling. The main winter storm will not begin until late tonight for most folks but we do have rain falling this afternoon. Snow and some freezing rain fell earlier this morning across the Texas Panhandle where light snow continues to fall. Roads are slick up in the Panhandle so drive carefully.
* Freezing line extends from Ardmore, Oklahoma southwest through Wichita Falls through Seymour to Snyder west to Lamesa into Hobbs, NM. Folks north of that line are below freezing with wind chills in the teens.
* Light snow is falling in Amarillo. An earlier round of snow mixed with freezing rain has made some roads slick across the Texas Panhandle.
* Snow totals across the northern Panhandle have been lowered along with the remainder of the Panhandle. Another 1 to 3 inches of snow will be possible on top of what has already fallen.
* Rain continues to fall across much of North, Northeast, and East Texas. Temperatures are above freezing and we do not anticipate any winter weather issues this afternoon or early this evening.
* Snow is falling across South-Central Oklahoma from north of Ardmore to near Purcell. Interstate 35 is slick and hazardous from the Arbuckle Mountains (MM45) through north of Pauls Valley, OK (MM80).
* The first round of precipitation is NOT the main show. We’ll see additional precipitation develop late tonight into Monday morning. This precipitation will fall as sleet and freezing rain across the Concho Valley, West-Central Texas, and North Texas where temperatures will be below freezing.
* Thundersleet will be a good bet on Monday in some areas. Where thunderstorms do develop they will cause rapid accumulation of sleet.
* Significant sleet accumulations are anticipated across the Concho Valley, West-Central Texas, and North Texas including the D/FW Metroplex during the morning rush hour on Monday. Road conditions will be slick and hazardous with dangerous travel conditions.
