Snow in Austin, Texas ! ! !

What is happening? What is this strange phenomenon? Snow in Austin?

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The majority of our snow storm has since cleared east with only a few leftover flakes flying in Milam and Lee County. Incredible snowfall totals of 3″-5″ have been reported from all over Central Texas, including in the Austin-metro. This is our largest snow event since the 1960s.

We would love to know how much snow fell in your area! Submit your snow measurements to reportit@kxan.com as a photo of a ruler in the snow on a flat, hard exposed surface.

Temperatures become the big focus moving forward as most of us are facing single digits temperatures and below zero wind chills this morning. Unfortunately, afternoon temperatures will likely stay in the teens all day. If we do in fact stay below 20 degrees today, this will be our coldest day in Austin history ever recorded.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until noon Monday for all of the KXAN viewing area. Potential snowfall accumulation could range between 3″-6″ in the Hill Country, and 1″-4″ for the Austin-metro and eastern counties.

Wind Chill Warnings are in effect for the first time in Austin history for wind chills that will drop to -15 to -20 degrees. This can cause frostbite in 30-60 minutes on exposed skin.
