UPDATE 05:37PM 02/23/10: More then five inches of snow has fallen on parts of East Texas:
5" Elkhart
5.25" Palestine
3" in Jacksonville
2.5" Looneyville

UPDATE: Heavy snow is moving into East Texas early this afternoon.  We have received reports of over 5.25" already in Palestine with more to come.  Most areas between Corsicana and Waco received 3"-5" of snow with this band that is moving through now.  Look for roads to remain mainly wet however, in areas of heavier snow bursts, a few slick spots could develop.  Based on current radar trends look for the heavy snow to be out of the area between 6 and 7 PM tonight.

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A winter storm warning is in effect for our southern counties today and a winter weather advisory is in effect for the I-20 corridor. An upper level low pressure will move across the state today causing widespread precipitation to break out. This will likely start out as a rain snow sleet mixture this morning but quickly transition to all snow by the late morning hours. Heavy snow is likely in some areas of East Texas today especially south of the Tyler Longview area. The Image here is an enlarged map of the forecast snowfall for East Texas through tonight. Notice the swath of 4 plus inches of snow expected from Palestine to Center. Up to two inches of snow can be expected along the I-20 corridor as well. For our snow lovers along the I-30 corridor, we may see a dusting to as much as an inch but it looks as though the majority of the snow will miss our northern counties.
