****NWS Amarillo's Facebook is currently inaccessible and they are working on getting it back up and running.****

Until then you can follow them on their Twitter Page @NWSAmarillo and also their web page at weather.gov/ama

We would like to share their current message regarding the winter storm Sunday night into Monday morning.

The storm track still looks like it will impact the I-40 corridor, with the highest projected snowfall amounts near Amarillo. Right now it looks like there's a decent chance for the entire Panhandles to see at least an inch or two. Start time looks to be mid to late morning across the northern Panhandle, and should reach the I-40 corridor around sunset on Sunday evening.

See the image below for further details and feel free to share/tag any friends or family that might live in the Panhandle area so they can stay up to speed on what's happening in their area.

BITTERLY COLD AIR IS ON THE WAY to end 2017/start 2018!

While today may be a little warmer than it has been recently across the South, don't get used to it! FRIGID temperatures will be diving southward this weekend. Check out the "high" temperature forecasts for Friday-Saturday-Sunday in the images. By Sunday (New Year's Eve), highs will struggle to get into the 30s and 40s across much of the South. And when people wake up on Monday, New Year's Day, temperatures will be extremely cold with single digits to teens across the northern tier of the South and wind chills sub-zero in some areas.

Thursday, February 2, 2017: Happy Groundhog's Day everyone! Punxsatawney Phil saw his shadow this morning which means 6 more weeks of winter. For many across the Southern U.S., there hasn't been much winter to speak of with above normal temperatures persisting lately. That trend will continue today for much of the Southeast U.S., along the Gulf coast, and into western New Mexico with above normal temperatures once again forecast. Meanwhile, a little dose of "winter" will invade the Southern Plains and into Arkansas with below normal temperatures forecast for today. No winter precipitation is forecast however.
