HOLY CRAP!!!!! It's snowing in Austin. It's snowing at the Portastorm Weather Center in scenic southwest Austin. A lot falling ... here are a few photos that don't do it justice.

Snowing heavily in SA! Unbelievable! I've never seen it like this here. Like Porta said, pictures don't do it justice.

We've gotten about 0.50 inch covering the grass and cars, and it's still coming down moderately. :D

I'm happy for everyone.. but you see that little green circle around DRT? I swear it must be the warm Amistad reservoir effect.

For you southeast Texas and coastal Texas folks, if the HI RES models are right, the area to watch is not the band in the north (AUS-CLL) but rather to your southwest. That's where the burst of snow should be coming from in the next few hours.

The heavier band has been sitting around CLL. That picture looks like a good 1.5"-2"

:uarrow: Quite impressive Ryan. I am not sure if you measured it yet, but just looking at that picture I am thinking 1-2 inches.
