Texas Faces Historic ‘Blizzard’

DEVELOPING: Texas Panhandle Faces 15 Inches of Snow, 'Historic' Blizzard

The National Weather Service says a “historic blizzard” could hit Amarillo, Lubbock and other parts of the Texas Panhandle this weekend.

Forecasters say the Panhandle could get 6 to 15 inches of snow, with higher amounts possible in pockets of the region. High winds could drive wind chill factor as low as 10 below zero and cause snow drifts several feet high.

The warning goes into effect at 6 p.m. Saturday through noon Monday.

Other parts of Texas are expected to see a wintry mix of rain, light snow and freezing temperatures.
