...Chance For Snow Across The Western Texas and Oklahoma
Panhandles Today...

Thanks to the combination of our post-frontal airmass and an
overrunning pattern, the western Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles
will likely see a round of light snow today. This snow could begin
as early as 6 AM, but the best chances are from midday into the
early evening. At this time, snow amounts for this area are
forecast to range from one half inch to just under 1 inch. Watch
for slick spots on roadways and overpasses.
