It is quite unusual to see such an extensive area of winter storm warnings across Texas, but that’s what we’re seeing now! The winter storm warning is for snow that much of central Texas is expecting on Sunday. The counties shaded in pink are for winter storm warnings. The blue-shaded counties into Louisiana are winter storm watches that will likely be upgraded to warnings tomorrow. Many of those areas are expecting 4-8 inches of snow!
More often than not, when we see a storm track this far south, we don’t get much of anything up here. The low would have to make a steep turn northward and guidance just doesn’t suggest that. We do have another disturbance that will be moving in from the northwest and that, along with this southern low, will work together to give us some precipitation on Monday.
The precip that falls during the day should be a rain/snow mix, while any precip that falls during the night could be snow. All precip is expected to be very light.
I’ll keep a close eye on this and let you know if any changes come that you need to know about!
In case you’re wondering, the blue-shaded counties in Florida are frost and freeze advisories.
The snow scale remains unchanged.
