WICHITA FALLS, TX (RNN Texoma) - An early snow is expected across the northwestern portion of Texoma. Childress, Hardeman, Foard, Cottle, and Jackson Counties could see 1-2 inches of snow. Everyone else will see mostly rain during Monday morning. A shift to wintry mix and snow will be possible between 8 a.m. and noon. In the afternoon our temperatures will be cold enough for snow, but the upper atmosphere will start to dry out behind the cold front. Winds will be very gusty out of the north 25-35 mph. Visibility will be an issue in rain or snow with these winds. Temperatures will be in the 30s for much of the day. A hard freeze will happen overnight Monday into Tuesday. This will be a plant killing freeze. I suggest protecting your pipes and bringing animals inside. Temperatures will be in the 20s from 9 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. on Tuesday. Highs will recover into the 60s by Wednesday. There could be a few slick spots on the roads Tuesday night if we are still seeing wet roads be the evening hours. I think there will be enough dry air to clear our roads.
