Texas Braces For Winter Storm

Winter Storm Warnings are underway in parts of Texas as a powerful winter storm system moves into the state.

Some portions of Central and western sections of North Texas could receive up to 6 inches of snow. The Dallas-Fort Worth area could receive an inch or two of snow. Lighter amounts of snow is possible as far south as Austin.

"I urge Texans in the path of this winter storm system to be mindful of changing weather conditions and take precautions to keep themselves and their loved ones safe," said Governor Abbott. "Stay off roadways and exercise extreme caution as this weather event makes its way across the state. Texas will continue to work with local officials to ensure they have the resources needed to respond."

At the direction of the Governor, the Texas Division of Emergency Management has rostered the following state resources to support winter weather preparation and response operations:

  • Texas Department of Transportation: Winter weather preparation and response equipment and crews.
  • Texas Department of Public Safety – Texas Highway Patrol: Courtesy patrols to assist stranded motorists along major travel corridors.
  • Texas Parks and Wildlife Department: Texas Game Wardens and four wheel drive vehicles to assist with stranded motorists along major travel corridors.
