The Texas panhandle could see an entire season’s worth of snow starting on Thanksgiving and continuing into Friday as a southeastward-bound storm progresses from the Pacific Northwest.
Northern Texas averages 17 inches of snow throughout the winter season, according to the National Weather Service. Excessive bouts of snow have already hit the northeastern part of the country last week, and another large accumulation of snow is set for Texas beginning on Thanksgiving and continuing overnight into Friday.
One forecast model shows the storm dumping as much as 24 inches of snow on Amarillo and 12 to 18 inches in the surrounding areas. Meteorologists expect the storm to impede Thanksgiving travel for a day or two after the holiday.
