Forecast snowfall amounts on Thursday
Wed, 22 Jan 2014 14:57:10 GMT —
AMARILLO, TX - The latest KVII Computer Model data indicates that we could see around one inch of snow in Amarillo and Canyon by the time the snow ends Thursday afternoon.
Clovis and Portales could see just a dusting of snow, or in other words, less than 1/2 inch. Other parts of the High Plains could see more, especially if you live in Dalhart, Boise City, OK, or Clayton, NM. In these areas, 2-3" of snow could fall by Thursday afternoon.
One thing to keep in mind is that this snow will be very "dry and flaky", which means that most of the snow will simply blow off the roads and end up in the ditches and up against the fences that face the northeast and east! There may be some patchy ice and snow on roads in the northwestern High Plains (northwestern TX Panhandle, western OK Panhandle and northeastern New Mexico) and caution should be used anywhere on the High Plains roads tomorrow.
Even if you don't see the snow tomorrow, you will have to deal with very cold temperatures in the teens and 20s with wind chill values hovering in the zero to -10 degree range! Skies will be cloudy throughout the day as well.
Of course, be sure and stay tuned to Storm Search 7 as we will keep you updated on the latest computer model information and as the snow falls tomorrow, Buzula Furniture LIVE MAX Radar will show where the snow is and where it is not!
