False Alarm, Round Two?
Over the past 24 hours, we've had the freezing temps and the precipitation, but they never really formed the icy situation that was forecast for Deep East Texas.
That's good, but, we may not be out of the woods, yet.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from Midnight tonight until 6pm Wednesday for Angelina, Nacogdoches, Sabine, Shelby, and Cherokee counties. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the same time period for counties to the north including the cities of Tyler and Longview.
What does this all mean?
Up to four inches of snow could fall in the Northeast Texas area and 1-2 inches could fall closer to Nacogdoches and Lufkin. The chart above from the National Weather Service shows which East Texas areas have the best chances to get at least an inch of snow. Lufkin and Nacogdoches are within the area of probability, but the best chances to see a decent snow cover would be in the areas shaded in blue.
This seems to be a rather fluid situation which means the forecast could change quite a bit over the next 12-24 hours, so keep monitoring this website and listen to KICKS 105 for all the latest updates.
