Episode Narrative A vigorous upper low moved across southern California tracked eastward across the southwestern states and central Rockies and then lifted northeast across the eastern Texas Panhandle. A strong cold front pushed south across the Texas Panhandle producing strong northerly winds. Abundant low level moisture along with the cold air and upper low combined to produce heavy snow and strong winds which resulted in blizzard conditions across much of the northern, central and western Texas Panhandle. Although no injuries or fatalities were reported, a Greyhound bus slid off the road in Oldham county on Interstate 40 westbound and there were between seventy-five and one hundred stranded motorists.
Event Narrative The Dalhart ASOS station located three miles southwest of Dalhart, Texas in Hartley county measured seven inches of snow and also reported sustained wind speeds of thirty-five miles an hour or greater and visibilities of one quarter of a mile or less. There were no reports of damages and also no reports of injuries or fatalities.
