LIFE THREATENING AND HISTORIC BLIZZARD UNDERWAY IN THE TEXAS PANHANDLE AND INTO WESTERN OKLAHOMA. PLEASE STAY OFF THE ROADS!!! Blizzard conditions have ramped up across the panhandle overnight and into this morning. Travel is out of the question and not recommended anywhere across the area. 6 inches of snow is already on the ground in Amarillo with more on the way. TXDot has closed a few of the major highways in and out of Amarillo. As of this post, I-40 westbound and Hwy 87 and 152 north of Amarillo are all currently closed due to snow and blizzard conditions, and additional road closures are expected. Wind gusts in excess of 60mph have been reported in the past few hours. The NWS Amarillo just posted a really scary video on their Facebook page taken from their office just a short while ago showing the incredible blizzard winds and blowing snow at their location near Rick Husband airport…and the worst of the winds have not even arrived yet. The worst of the winds are expected to impact the area between 6am and 4pm this afternoon.

LOL...Its not too bad in the DFW area right now. Here is our forecast.

Now
A few showers and thunderstorms will continue this morning mainly north and east of a line from Graham to Greenville to Athens. Lightning and small hail will be the main threats with any storms. Rainfall accumulations will be less than tenth of an inch. The main story of the day now turns to the strong winds occurring behind a front that is slowly progressing east across the region. Winds from the west at 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 45 or 50 mph will become more common during the afternoon hours with the strongest winds expected along and west of Interstate 35. Lightweight or loose outdoor objects should be secured. A Wind Advisory is in effect for all of north and central Texas through midnight. Later this afternoon we will see additional showers mainly north of Interstate 20 as a powerful upper level low moves across Oklahoma. There will likely be some snow mixed with the rain north of Interstate 20. Very light accumulations of snow are possible this afternoon but are more likely this evening near the Red River. Otherwise...mostly cloudy skies can be expected despite brief breaks in the clouds. Temperatures through midday will remain in the 40s and 50s.

Amarillo Globe News is reporting literally thousands of stranded vehicles all over the Texas Panhandle today...

Life threatening situation out there people, if you are at home, stay home! If you are at your place of work, stay at your place of work! If you are in any kind of decent warm shelter, stay in that decent warm shelter!!!

And apparently word is coming in that the National Guard that was coming in to help with rescue operations is stranded as well...

If by some chance you are stranded, and can see this, if you are in open country and cannot see a house or town very nearby, you should stay put INSIDE YOUR VEHICLE until the wind abates this evening...

We'll get you out when we can get out...
