TODAY: Temperatures not moving much through the day so expect it to feel much colder with the northerly wind. Some light snow possible by lunch time especially to our north and western counties. Some light accumulations will be possible with an inch likely. Some light mixed precipitation, changing to snow will pick up for the rest of us during the day.

TONIGHT: A plume of moisture moves in from the southwest bringing heavier snow bans into our area. It will be common to have 2-4 inches in the central south plains, higher amounts in some locations possible. 3-6 inches will be possible to our south and eastern counties with higher amount possible.

Something else to move the snow will be our wind staying 12-22mph, higher snow drifts likely in some areas. Low near 17, but with the wind it will feel near 0°!

With this snow traveling in the morning likely to be slippery and dangerous. Plan for extra time if you decide to commute and here are some extra driving tips for snow:

WEDNESDAY: Heavier snow pushes east of our area through the morning with light snow sticking around. It will begin to clear from west to east during the day, but cloudy and cold temperatures stay in place. Since we stay near freezing during the day, the snow wont melt much and driving concerns will continue into Thursday morning.

EXTENDED: Temperatures gradually climb with sunshine to end this week. Another front Saturday will keep temperatures cool, but not a major drop like today.

Have a great Tuesday! Stay safe and drive smart while dealing with this wintry precipitation. Matt will have the latest updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
