Tracking Our Next Winter Storm
The puzzle is coming together for our next winter storm. Counties north of I-20 will see the brunt of it. For places like Throckmorton and Haskell, two to four inches of snow is not out of the question. Those of us from Abilene southward will mainly see sleet and freezing rain, with up to an inch of snow in the forecast as well. The precipitation will start in the Panhandle and then expand southward through the first half of the day, leaving the Heartland by around 3pm. Cold air will stick around through Monday morning, which means the roadways will still be slick when you head to work. One thing to keep in mind is how close the line is for Abilene to receive a decent amount of precipitation to almost nothing. Our saving grace will once again be the warm days we have seen lately. There will be a lag time for the ground to reach freezing, however, bridges and overpasses will freeze rather quickly.
