Texas Panhandle To See First Snowfall This Season

3:15 PM CDT | November 7, 2017

The Texas Panhandle should see its first accumulating snow of the season. As lift increases ahead of our system, rain and snow showers will develop in the High Plains this evening and shift eastward tonight. Temperatures will support rain/snow and snow showers in the Texas Panhandle, especially north of I-40. A dusting to an inch is likely for parts of the panhandle. Where the heavier bands set up, I personally believe locally higher amounts around 2 inches will be possible. We could see some sleet and/or freezing rain as well before activity transitions to all rain farther south and east. The following graphic shows what the National Weather Service in Amarillo is currently anticipating.

Across the remainder of Texas, expect showers to increase tonight and tomorrow morning. The heaviest rainfall amounts look to be from West Central Texas through Northeast/East Texas. A swath of .25" to 1.00"+ is expected across this area by Wednesday night. This will be welcome rainfall for an area that has dried out quite a bit. A few rumbles of thunder are possible, but most activity will be in the form of rain showers. The state dries out on Thursday as the system pushes away from the state.
