First Snow Possible Across The Texas Panhandle Sunday Night

A strong cold front is forecast to move across the Oklahoma and
Texas Panhandles late Saturday night and early Sunday morning and
will deliver the coldest air so far this fall season. In addition,
an upper level storm system is expected to affect the area 
beginning Saturday night and continuing into Monday. The
combination of these two features will likely result in the first
snowfall of the fall season for most of the region. 

Snow is forecast to develop across the northwest sections of the 
Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles Sunday morning, then expand 
southeast to include all of the Oklahoma Panhandle and most of the
Texas Panhandle by Sunday evening. A mix of light rain and light 
snow is anticipated across the southeast Texas Panhandle Sunday 
night. The wintry precipitation is expected to diminish on Monday.

Preliminary indications are that three to four inches of snow with
locally higher amounts will be possible across the western and 
central Oklahoma Panhandle as well as the far northwest Texas 
Panhandle, decreasing to one to two inches in the eastern 
Oklahoma Panhandle and the remainder of the Texas Panhandle except
the southeast section, where less than one inch total snowfall 
accumulation is expected at this time. 

In addition, low temperatures both early Monday morning and early
Tuesday morning are forecast to fall well into the 20s across the
Oklahoma Panhandle and nearly all of the Texas Panhandle, resulting
in a hard, killing freeze during these time periods.
