Snow blankets Stephens County as winter storm moves across state

The National Weather Service’s forecast held true, and Breckenridge and Stephens County have received as much as six inches of snow since early this morning, Sunday, Jan. 10. The winter storm was almost a year to the day after last year’s big snow, which started on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020.

The winter storm moved in from the west, blanketing most of North Texas and some of Central Texas with anywhere from a dusting to several inches of snow. The NWS projects the snow to continue, tapering off in the evening hours. The Weather Channel’s radar indicates that the precipitation could turn to rain later today.

The overnight low is supposed to be around 24 degrees, and Monday’s high temperature is predicted to remain below 40. As the week goes on, the weather is forecast to clear up with sunny skies and highs in the 60s by Thursday.

Stephens County got as much as six inches of snow in some parts, and the snow continued to fall after noon, even as the temperature warmed up and the snow on the ground and in the trees started to melt.
