Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 2:51 PM CST Dec. 11, 2018 – National Weather Service

... High winds likely across all of west central Texas on Thursday
and Thursday night...

... There is also a potential for snowfall mainly along and north
of I-20 for Thursday afternoon and evening...

A strong upper level storm system will develop across west central
Texas on Thursday. Northwest winds of 30 to 40 mph will be common
across all of west central Texas, with occasional wind gusts over
50 mph possible. These high winds will continue into the evening
hours. Motorists along highways that run east to west, such as
I-20 and I-10, will see dangerous driving conditions, especially
those in high profile vehicles. Outside furniture and Holiday
decorations may need to be brought inside to protect them.

In addition, as temperatures cool by Thursday afternoon, an area
of rain may begin to mix with or change over to snow across areas
north of I-20 from Sweetwater to Abilene. At this point, it appears
that temperatures will stay above freezing. However, there is a
small possibility that a band of heavier snow may develop and
produce enough snow to create slick spots on area roadways. Future
forecasts will be able to fine tune this possibility, focusing on
if and where this heavier snow may develop.
