AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Snow continues to work its way through the region as we head into the midday hours of our Wednesday.

Several inches of snow have accumulated across the area, prompting low visibility. At last check, 2.7″ was measured in Southwest Amarillo, with upwards of 3″ in the Hereford area as a ban of heavier snow works its way off to the east.

Highest travel impact will likely be during the morning commute through midday, as snow packed roads become slick and dangerous. Any roads that are able to thaw somewhat are expected to promptly refreeze tomorrow night prolonging the dangerous travel.

Along with hazardous travel, some frigid wind chills near zero will accompany the winter system, especially Wednesday night through Thursday morning.

This band of snow will track to the east, leaving clearing conditions by the evening hours, taking any and all snow chances for the rest of the week with it.
