Snow falls in part of the Texas Panhandle

2019-10-25 15:31
PART OF THE TEXAS PANHANDLE IS BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE A WINTER WONDERLAND. A MEASURABLE AMOUNT OF SNOW FELL IN CITIES LIKE AMARILLO AND FRITCH THURSDAY. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWEETED THAT PRELIMINARY REPORTS SHOWED FOUR INCHES OF SNOW FELL FIVE MILES WEST OF AMARILLO. SEVERAL COMMUNITIES IN THE AREA WERE EXPECTED TO GET ONE TO THREE INCHES. THE LAST TIME AMARILLO SAW SNOW IN OCTOBER WAS BACK IN 2011. IN HIGHER ELEVATIONS-- EXPERTS WARNED SIX TO EIGHT INCHES OF SNOW COULD FALL. AUTHORITIES REPORTED MULTIPLE ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY THE ICY WEATHER. NO WORD ON IF ANYONE WAS SERIOUSLY HURT. Credit: Twitter/ @trades_mcgrady, @drpenn, @texas_farmouse, Instagram/ @vibrant_travelers
