Episode Narrative A potent upper level storm system moved across West Central Texas behind a strong Arctic airmass. These systems produced some wintry precipitation across all of the Big Country, portions of the Concho Valley and the Heartland counties. This was the first event of the season that affected the opening of several school districts and other planned community activities. The Abilene School District closed schools for the day. Only a few accidents were reported. A mixture of precipitation types occurred. The first type was light freezing rain, that quickly transitioned to sleet and snow as thunderstorms developed. The Abilene airport reported thundersnow for a time during the event. While this event fell just below warning criteria, this event will be counted as a winter storm for the following reasons: it was the first of the season that developed during an unseasonably warm fall, and it significantly impacted commerce. The northwest Big Country did meet the local warning criteria with four inches of snow across Nolan, Fisher, Jones and Haskell counties. Elsewhere, amounts of snow were about one inch or less with some light freezing rain and sleet. In addition, warm temperatures the day before kept the ground temperatures above freezing.
