3:30 PM-This is the second snow event in a week. That is very uncommon here in Texoma. Snow accumulations have ranged from 1 inch west of I-35 to around 9 inches in Gainseville near Lake Kiowa being reported. Here at KXII-TV in Sherman we have recieved 5 to 5 1/2 inches. Snow continues to come down mainly along and east of I-35. The snow is moderate to heavy at times. Road conditions are hazardous. With temperatures expected to drop into the upper 30's and lower 20's overnight some of the slush on roadways and bridges will begin to ice if they haven't already. Most of Texoma is under a Winter Weather Warning until 6am. This means that significant snow accumulations are possible and we have already seen this. Please be very careful if you are out this afternoon and evening. If you can stay at home. --Megan Krannig, KXII-TV Meteorologist--

 

3:02 PM-- Virtually everywhere in Texoma is bad for driving.  Don't get out if you have rear wheel drive, you won't be able to get anywhere, it doesn't matter what type of vehicle you drive, you're going to get stuck becuase there are vehicles everywhere stalled and off the road, if you have road conditions/closures, DO NOT call the police department, they know it's bad.  Only call if you have an emergency. Bridges and overpasses are obviously the worst, STAY HOME. If you have to travel, be sure your headlights are on so you are visible on the road

 

2:54 PM-- School, church, and business closings continue to come into the newsroom. Check http://www.kxii.com/home/headlines/14287402.html for more.
