Episode Narrative A strong slow moving upper level closed low pressure system moved out of the southwest U.S. into West Texas on the 24th. This system persisted and remained nearly stationary throughout the day on the 24th and 25th bringing significant accumulating snowfall to the region. Generally light to moderate snow fell across much of the South Plains and western Rolling Plains beginning late on the 23rd and ending early in the morning on the 26th. The western Rolling Plains saw mostly rain as temperatures were too warm for accumulating snowfall. From the late morning hours to the mid afternoon on the 24th, a band of heavy snow developed extending from Cochran County into southern Hale County. This band of snowfall quickly dumped between four to ten inches of snow.
