FIRST ALERT: Snow Impacts Area Travel Thursday
Your First Alert Weather Team is here watching out for you!

WICHITA FALLS, TX (RNN Texoma) - Today we expect to see our most high-impact snow of the season, so far. What started as a rain snow mix early this morning will become all snow and begin to accumulate on grassy areas and create a slippery slush on bridges and overpasses. In those areas where we see heavy snow fall, slush will accumulate on roads and highways demanding cautious driving across much of Texoma. Based on the latest weather data, we expect the most significant snow to fall across most of southern Oklahoma and that part of north Texas near the Red River including Wichita Falls, Electra and Vernon.

One positive in the forecast is we don’t expect temperatures to fall below their current values. So, its possible that main highways will remain passable. Snow will come to an end this evening. Ice on driveways and residential roads should be expected through early morning Friday. We’re forecasting a considerable warm up this weekend.
