Snowburst Whitens Texas and Oklahoma

By Grace Muller, Staff Writer

Good morning, Texas, and welcome to winter. A cold front that originated in the Arctic shot all the way down to Texas and Oklahoma Monday morning. The cold air went through Dallas Sunday night to produce a snowburst. A snowburst is a short, strong snow shower that is dangerous because visibility is very low and can cause roads to ice up quickly.

Temperatures Monday morning were in the 20s as far south as Oklahoma and Texas, with temperatures in the single digits in western Texas.
