...Snowy system headed toward the panhandles this weekend...

A storm system will gather strength across the 4-corners region on
Friday night and then it will dive southeast into east central
New Mexico by mid day Saturday. This system will then move
northeast across the Texas Panhandle Saturday night.

Rain is expected to develop across the panhandles Friday night.
Rain will start to change to snow across the western Oklahoma
Panhandle and the northwest Texas Panhandle on Saturday. The snow
will then spread southeast across much of the panhandles Saturday
night into Sunday morning.

At this time, it looks like the best chances of accumulating snow
will be along and northwest of a line from Lipscomb, TX to
Amarillo, TX. Greater than 3 inches of snow will be possible
across the western and central Oklahoma Panhandle and the
northwest quarter of the Texas Panhandle. In addition...strong
north winds may cause low visibilities in blowing snow.

The track of the upper level storm system may change which would
greatly alter the expected snow amounts across the region. Stay
tuned for later updates on this developing winter system.
