Quick Winter Storm To Be Followed By Warming Trend

By: AndyAnderson, 1:16 AM GMT on December 11, 2012

A fast-moving wave of low pressure brought sleet and snow to north Texas and parts of southern Oklahoma overnight.

Sleet and snow were responsible for multiple accidents. Following the 911 vehicle accident calls in Wichita Falls for a three-hour period this morning, the average was 10 accidents at any given time.

The narrow band of precipitation in advance of the low as moved south and east, resulting in strong thunderstorms as it mixes with warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico.

Temperatures in the Texoma region should moderate somewhat through the week, with a slight chance of thunderstorms as an upper-level low system makes its way east along the Oklahoma/Kansas border.

Next update will be on Wednesday, 12/12 or as conditions warrant.

Overnight Sleet and Snow Flurries in Texoma

By: AndyAnderson, 11:36 AM GMT on December 10, 2012

Residents of Texoma are waking up to snow-covered ground this morning, as a band of snow ahead of a wave of low pressure in southeastern Colorado swept through the area just after midnight.

Most of this should melt off later in the afternoon as temperatures climb into the mid 40's.

Temperatures will begin to moderate mid-week, and I'm watching an upper-level storm system as it moves ashore in the Pacific northwest, as the latest model runs suggest it could bring thunderstorm activity to the Texoma area in the next 5-6 days.
