Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook:
Not much break from the heat as highs approach or reach 100° degrees Saturday through Monday. Overnights in the mid to upper 70s.
Fall weather finally came to Texas today, ending an unseasonably warm November with a taste of winter-like conditions.
The National Weather Service says as many as 4 inches of snow
fell in the Abilene area.
Abilene police say there were no road closures this evening, but
the heavy snowfall did lead to some minor weather-related traffic
Parts of North Texas, the Panhandle and West Texas saw light
snowfall with little to no accumulation. A meteorlogist with the
national Weather Service says recent warm temperatures kept the
ground warm and the snow melting.
More snow is in the forecast tomorrow for the Panhandle. There's
a 50 percent chance of snow in the Amarillo area.
But the cold front across North Texas was a quick-moving system
that should move out by early tomorrow morning.
