..WINTER TO MAKE A RETURN...

A STRONG UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM CURRENTLY OVER NORTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA WILL GATHER STRENGTH BEFORE LIFTING NORTHEAST TOWARD SOUTHERN ARIZONA AND NEW MEXICO SUNDAY. THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO WEST TEXAS DURING THE DAY MONDAY AND INTO OKLAHOMA TUESDAY.

AS THIS SYSTEM MOVES INTO WEST TEXAS...A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL PUSH ACROSS THE PANHANDLES MONDAY. MUCH COLDER AIR WILL ACCOMPANY THIS FRONT...SO RAIN IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE OVER TO SNOW FROM WEST TO EAST ACROSS THE PANHANDLES MONDAY WITH SNOW CONTINUING INTO EARLY TUESDAY.

AT THIS TIME...THE TRACK AND TIMING OF THIS NEXT SYSTEM IS VERY UNCERTAIN. THEREFORE...TOTAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE HIGHLY VARIABLE.
IT DOES APPEAR THAT THIS STORM WILL BE STRONG ENOUGH TO BRING AT LEAST 4 INCHES OF SNOW TO PARTS OF THE PANHANDLES. STRONG NORTH WINDS WILL ACCOMPANY THE SNOW...SO BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE.
