TYLER, TX (KLTV) - We've been talking about it for several days now, and as we get closer and closer to Tuesday, we are getting more information about the snow returning to East Texas.
An upper-level disturbance is forecast to move out of New Mexico late Monday night and into Western Texas by Tuesday morning. As this disturbance moves eastward, it will draw moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico over the cold air. The atmosphere still looks prime for a snow event here in East Texas. We will see a sleet/snow mix early on Tuesday, transitioning over to all snow by the afternoon and evening. The snow looks to come to an end by early on Wednesday.
The latest computer data indicates that we could see 1 to 3 inches of snow, mainly along and south of I-20. North of I-20 looks to see a dusting, but less than an inch is expected. Some heavier snowfall is forecast to the southwest of us, so the National Weather Service has already posted Winter Storm Watches for Anderson and Henderson counties for Tuesday.
We are not expecting quite the amount of snow we received a couple of weeks ago, but we will continue to monitor this and have the latest throughout Monday.
