Southern Texas experience uncommon snowfall


Bone chilling temperatures behind a frosty front joined with dampness off the Gulf of Mexico have yielded an uncommon snowfall in many parts of South and Southeast Texas.

The National Weather Service reports snow from San Antonio into East Texas. National Weather Service meteorologist Brett Williams said up to 2.5 crawls of snow had been measured starting at 9 p.m. Thursday in the San Antonio region. The latest practically identical snowfall in San Antonio had been in January 1987, when 1.3 crawls of snow amassed, yet the latest real snowfall was 13.2 creeps in January 1985.

Up to 3 creeps of snow was normal in the Corpus Christi region by Friday morning. Climate Service meteorologist Kevin Wagner said the latest practically identical snowfall in Corpus Christi was 4.4 creeps on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, 2004.
