Winter storm moves out of East Texas

By Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto

Winter Storm Warnings until 4PM for NW counties. All Other Advisories/Warnings have been canceled.

The winter storm that was forecast earlier in the week certainly came to be last night and today.

The upper level storm that caused all of this wintry weather, is moving out of the area this afternoon, taking with it all of the wintry precipitation.

Travel conditions are poor at best across a good portion of East Texas and motorists are being asked to take it very slowly; or even stay off of the roads until the snow and ice melts away.

Snowfall totals across East Texas range anywhere from a dusting in a few locations to upwards of 8.00". A 2" – 4" snowfall average seems to be the norm over most of the area with much higher totals northern sections.

Ice remains a problem over the southern and southeastern sections of East Texas making driving nearly impossible.

We will continue to keep you posted on the weather throughout the day today and tomorrow until we get back to a state of ‘Normal' which may take a little while.
