Southern Snow Again

Once again there’s a flow from the Pacific Ocean to southern California, to the Southwest, to Texas. Once again, El Niño-fueled storms are bringing rain and snow to the southern 1/3 of the United States. And once again cold and snow are pushing unusually far south into Texas.

Snow and sleet are expected to increase in coverage and intensity across northwest Texas and western Oklahoma Monday afternoon and evening, then spread quickly east and south across central and northern Texas plus southern Oklahoma Tuesday morning. The winter precipitation then moves quickly eastward Tuesday afternoon and evening, though lighter accumulations are expected for eastern locations.

As is typical with this type of storm, the track of the storm center is critical and a small change in storm track could mean a tremendous difference in where the heaviest accumulations fall.

It was just a week ago Dallas received about 12 inches of snow.
