Heavy snow is beginning to fall across parts of East Texas this first FULL day of Spring. Reports of over 8” of snow have been received from areas near Dallas and this heavy band is now moving through Van Zandt and Henderson Counties. The good news is the sun’s energy is helping to melt most of the snow today however, in very heavy bands snow will accumulate on grassy surfaces and bridges and overpasses. Near blizzard conditions have been reported with visibilities less than a ¼ mile in heavy snow with wind up to 35 mph. If you have to be out and about this afternoon, use caution.
