A *WINTER STORM WATCH* is in effect from 6 AM Sunday through 12 PM Monday. This may be of the heavy variety. We are tracking this storm very closely because of the big potential impacts this may cause. Right now most areas look to see around 4″-6″ of snow. This includes Abilene and the I-20 corridor. Higher amounts may be seen in the northern Big Country. Lower amounts look to be seen in the southern Big Country and Heartland. These numbers are subject to change. It is still a few days out.
