Roads are slick due to the latest round of sleet, freezing drizzle, and light snow. Snow accumulations up to six inches have been reported in the NW part of the area, with one to three inches of snow and sleet elsewhere, including Amarillo.

Due to icy conditions, make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get where you’re going, and take it slow and leave lots of space between you and other cars.

As the main upper level low pressure system approaches from the SW tonight, snow is expected to expand in coverage and intensify.

Snow will likely continue into early tomorrow and then even linger on the back side of the system late tomorrow. Snow may accumulate to 10 inches or more in the NW part of our area, with a few to several inches in the central zones including Amarillo.

The eastern Panhandle may have only sleet and then transition to rain which will limit snow totals to minor amounts.
