Winter Storm affects West Central Texas:

 February 23rd, 2010

 

      On February 23rd, 2010 a winter storm dumped several  inches of snow over a wide area across West Central Texas.  Amounts ranged from a few inches of snow to as much as six inches.  Most of the snow fell between the Interstate 10 and Interstate 20 corridors. A cold front moved into the area Sunday night into Monday, putting cold air in place across the area. A strong upper level storm system then moved into the area from New Mexico providing lift over the top of the cold air mass at the surface. This brought on the bands of heavy snow that resulted from early Tuesday morning through Tuesday afternoon across our area. Below are some images and snowfall totals from the storm.
