Here are our latest thoughts with the snow potential. The items of interest will be the transition area, due to the fact ice could form, especially on bridges and overpasses. Otherwise, snow will be of concern for mainly the northwestern portion of our forecast area. Light accumulations of around a trace to around two inches will be possible in the northwest.
The northwest Panhandles still have the best chance for accumulating snows Friday night through Saturday, though the highest rainfall amounts will probably be in the southeast Texas Panhandle.
Highs will be in quite a flux over the next several days with rain and snow, for some areas, in the forecast over the next 36 hours. Then a break as we warm up early next week. Then we are watching a strong surge of cold air that is expected to arrive mid next week. Some models are suggesting our highs might not even get above freezing. Stay tuned for updates to our ever changing day to day temperatures.
