A dynamic upper level low is moving across the state bringing with it a mixed bag of rain, thunderstorms, and wintry precipitation.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect through 6AM Tuesday morning for our Western counties of Coke, Fisher, and Nolan. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from noon today until 6AM Tuesday for Haskell, Jones, Runnels, and Taylor counties.
We're starting the day with showers and some thunderstorms across the area. Lighting, thunder, moderate rainfall, and pea size hail are possible throughout the morning hours with these storms. Temperatures are hovering in the upper 30's to near 40, and won't be moving much throughout the day. Periods of rain, and even some storms, will continue throughout the morning and afternoon, and further West the rain/snow line will begin to move East.
Western counties will see the rain/snow mix by this afternoon/evening. Eastern counties will continue with mostly rain. As temperatures drop to near freezing tonight, the rain/snow line will continue to move East. Most could see some in the way of snow by Tuesday morning before the entire system lifts to the North and East, ending our precipitation by Tuesday afternoon.
Snowfall amounts will vary across the Big Country. For the Western counties, 4-7" are possible. For Central areas, 1-3", and a dusting for those to the East and in the Heartland. A lot depends on the exact track of the Low as it moves to our South, and our temperatures. Slight chances are possible and could effect precipitation type/amounts.
By Tuesday we'll see clearing skies with highs in the upper 40's. We're back into the mid/upper 50's by Wednesday in advance of another cold front. Cooler for the end of the week with Thursday's highs in the 40's, and lower 50's by Friday with overnight lows in the mid/upper 20's.
