Look at the Temperature Difference
Temperatures range from 19 in Amarillo and Dalhart to 77 in Del Rio at 1PM. Severe storms are forming in central TX with a tornado warning out for Eastland CO. Strong gusty winds could occur across East Texas if this line holds together. Flash flood warning are also in effect with this line but as the line speeds up, flooding concerns will decrease.
On the cold side of the storm. I-40 around Amarillo is closed. Up to 6" of snow has fallen in the Panhandle with drifts up to 2 feet. Visibilities in heavy snow are under 100 yards. This is going to be a historic storm across parts of the Southern Plains. If you plan to travel across Oklahoma or the Texas Panhandle, cancel don't. Conditions are life threatening in these areas.
