It looks like the next huge winter storm will move through Texas this weekend. Starting out in the Panhandle on Saturday and then progressing across N TX on Sunday. As always, the track is key to who gets the snow. As of now, it looks like DFW is finally going to get the snow all the kids dream about. I still caution however, that today is Thursday. A slight change in track could lower amounts, but snow looks to be a definite. As a matter of fact, should see a wide swath all the way down through C/E TX, including my college home of Aggieland in Bryan/College Station.
Oklahoma will get snow out of this system as well, in two stages. First would be late Saturday in W/SW OK. Nothing huge, but a dusting likely for some. The next round would be Sunday night as the system exits Texas and turns north a bit more. I’ll have updates on this outcome, but looks like far S/SE OK will get some snow out of this system.
As of now the upper low is running along the I-20 corridor. Image here shown at Sunday evening position. All of the colors represent lift in the atmosphere squeezing out that moisture.
The next set of graphics, are various computer model outputs for snowfall. The take home here at this point, is that a lot of snow is going to fall and it will be centered across the N half of TX.
I’ll have more on this winter storm in the coming days. Be sure to watch my live broadcasts, typically after 9pm. -AT
