Wave of snow showers this morning to midday dumped trace to 0.6" snow.

It will warm up with 40s Thursday-Saturday with a few p.m. showers Friday possible & some showers possible Saturday, ending as some snow showers Saturday night-Sunday morning.

Sunday looks cold & windy with clouds & steady temperatures of 27-32 with wind chills 12-19.

Two systems to watch next week........

One is Monday with risk of snow/ice depending on track.  It is also unclear how much, depending on track.  More & more information will come fourth as we end the week & move into the weekend.

Track will be dictated by position of Arctic surface high to our northwest & position of far Southeast upper ridge & its nearby Bermuda-type surface high.

Ensembles show consistent Texas Panhandle storm with the wintry weather risk here.

Another system will occur late next week, but track, dominant precipitation types & amounts are in question.

Bitterly cold air will occur between the two systems, however.

Lows near 0 are possible Tuesday night with calm winds & Arctic centered nearby.

If we get a nice snowpack, we could drop well below 0.

It may be mostly sunny Wednesday, but it will be cold with highs in the teens.  The wind looks light to calm, however.

As wind turns to southeast then south Wednesday night, temperatures should rise from teens to near 20 to the 20s.

20s & 30s with east to southeast winds & icy mix/snow are possible late next week.

A post-Christmas/pre-New Years system will also bear watching as it comes out of the Texas Panhandle with risk of ice/snow here.

Another one is possible in the first few days of January & another around the 9th followed by potential of "Polar Vortex" type cold outbreak.

This could make for even a bit of sleet & freezing rain to the Gulf Coast.

We may see a bit of a clipper pattern ensue as the cold erodes eastward toward January 12-15.

Nor'Easter risk will go up with these clippers & this kind of cold.  These will tend to keep us continued overall colder than normal.
