Snow possible for East Texas tonight

Posted By Grant Dade - bio | email |blog

A fast moving disturbance will dive south towards the area today bringing a chance of light precipitation to East Texas overnight. Right now it appears temperatures will be cold enough that some of this precipitation will fall in the form of snow. The lowest levels of the atmosphere are very dry so any snow that does fall will be very light. Combine this with temperatures that will remain slightly above freezing no accumulation is expected. As with any potential snow event, a lot could change between now and this evening and if any areas of moderate precipitation do develop, a light dusting on elevated surfaces could occur.

By late tomorrow morning this system will have moved off to our east bringing drier and cooler air into the area. So sorry kids and snow lovers everywhere, this does not appear to be a significant winter weather event. As we look into the crystal ball, a much colder air mass will be moving into the United States next week. Depending on the eventual path of this air mass, next week could be very cold around East Texas. Right now it appears the brunt of this cold air will move to the southeast but if it moves a little more to the south, highs next week could struggle to reach the 40 degree mark. Stay tuned.
