A blanket of snow coated grassy areas around Texoma on Saturday morning.
As the morning progressed, the temperatures rose and melted the snow brought in by the tip of the storm system currently affecting the Midwest and Northeast.
According to the National Weather Service, Texoma should be done experiencing precipitation for the next few days, Meteorologist Bianca Villaneuva of the Fort Worth office said Saturday morning.
“You guys will be warming up and then you will see another cold front push into the area starting mid-next week,” she said.
Villaneuva said Texoma saw about .04 inches of precipitation Friday night.
While the normal precipitation reporting areas had not told the weather service about snow totals, Villaneuva said they had been receiving pictures of the accumulation via Twitter.
“So we do not really have a snow fall total or any measures for the area,” she said.
Coming into Sunday, the temperatures in North Texas will be on the rise. While the area will start the morning with temperatures in the 20s, by the afternoon the area should be well above freezing.
“The low on Sunday is 37 and the high is 45,” Villanueva said. “Then on Monday, the high will be 56.”
Another cold front will enter the area on Wednesday, pushing temperatures back down into the 40s throughout the rest of the week, she continued.
“There is a 20 percent chance of precipitation on Tuesday only,” Villanueva said. “The high will be in the upper 50s on that day only.”
And with the new cold front, precipitation is not expected, she continued.
So while this same storm that is currently affecting the eastern third of the nation with ice up to a quarter of an inch, heavy rain and flash flooding in the South and Mid-Atlantic regions, and thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes in the Deep South, North Texas will only be seeing strong winds.
A wind advisory went into affect at midnight Saturday morning and lasted until 6 p.m. The weather service expected winds of 25-35 miles per hour and wind gusts of upwards of 45 miles per hour.
All of this, Villanueva said, is typical for this part of the state during this time of the year.
“Since you guys do not receive snow that often, we do not have a lot of information on typical snowfall during this time of the year for you all,” she said. “But from the others that have worked here at the weather service for longer than I have, they said it is typical for North Texas to get its first snow fall accumulation in late January and early February.”
