Some parts of Texas get snow, schools delayed
DALLAS (AP) — Snow flurries have forced schools to close early and snarled roads across North Texas, Central Texas and the Panhandle.
The National Weather Service recorded light snow Thursday in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Abilene, Midland-Odessa, San Angelo and Lubbock.
The University of Texas at Austin and Texas State University in San Marcos opened classes late Thursday due to winter weather, and school districts in North Texas and the Panhandle were announcing school closures.
Most of Dallas and Fort Worth registered 1/2 to 1 inch of snow, with temperatures dipping into the teens. The city of Dallas activated a condition it calls “Ice Force Level 1,” with trucks dumping sand on roads.
The snow was expected to fade by Thursday afternoon.
No weather-related injuries were immediately reported.
