It now appears a powerful artic airmass will be making its way down through the Central/Southern Plains to the Gulf Coast, with the coldest temps of the season likely through these areas, starting Monday, going through Thursday or Friday this coming week (01/10-01/15/11).

Daytime highs will be down into the single digits as far south as northern Kansas, with temps staying below freezing as far south as the Dallas, TX. area. Highs in the 30s will be seen to San Antonio, with 40s hugging the Gulf Coast to Brownsville.

Overnight lows below zero will be seen as far south as southern Kansas, with single digits into southern Oklahoma, teens possible to southern areas of North Central Texas. Gusty winds during this time will make windchills dive below zero into areas of Oklahoma, with single digit windchills into central Texas.

A large snowstorm appears likely across NE Texas and SE Oklahoma Sunday into Sunday night, with over 4" possible from Ida, OK to Paris, TX, to Texarkana, to areas of NW Louisiana and SW Arkansas. 1"-3" snowfalls likely from Ardmore, OK to Sherman, TX, to Dallas, TX, to Tyler, TX, over to Shreveport, LA, to Monroe and Natchez, LA. The snowstorm will move east into eastern LA and MS Sunday night, providing up to 8" of snow and sleet from Bastrop, LA to Macon, MS, with up to 4" of snow/sleet/ice south of I-20 in MS.

Looks like the central and southern parts of the USA are in for a big winter event, folks!

Yes, I saw this too.

It looks like just off the Gulf/South Atlantic coastal plain (fall line) there could be a wet snow/light ice for a time. It's hard to think that just 1 inch of snow, or even a trace would be a big deal, but in places like Montgomery it is. I think once you get into central Arkansas and Missouri snow/ice happens once in a while a bit more (though not common, of course). What is the word in the citrus districts in south Texas, from what I've read the citrus districts in Florida should be just below the really cold air. I guess we'll find out.

Mid winter is truly howling in from Canada!

72 days till spring!

Winter is really on a roll this year, can't believe the pics from Atlanta! They have a big game there this weekend! I know personal safety, public services take priority over a playoff game!
