But first it will hit Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
A cold storm system over southern Oregon will drop southeastward tonight and bring significant snow accumulations to much of eastern New Mexico beginning Saturday afternoon and continuing through Sunday morning. Hazardous winter travel impacts are forecast mainly for the Rio Grande Valley eastward.
The storm system should move into North and Central Texas Saturday night and exit the region Sunday night, leaving up to 6 inches (15 cm) in the southwest Texas Panhandle.
Most of the area is expected to receive snowfall.
The heaviest snow should remain to the south and west of Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) with widespread 1-3″ possible.
The forecast map from the National Weather Service shows snow dipping as far south as Waco and Temple, whialmost as far south as Austin.
We do expect bands of heavy snow to develop, and some may produce localized higher amounts.
We still do not know where these bands will develop, but are confident in the high-end amount inside of those bands.
These values are subject to change over the next 24-36 hours!
