Snow in Texas: As much as 7 inches of snow has fallen in Amarillo
Amarillo expected to get up to 8 inches of snow
Snow is also falling in Oklahoma and New Mexico. So, anyone planning to hit the road should be cautious.

Officials are reporting hazardous travel conditions on roadways across the Panhandle and northern South Plains after heavy snow fell overnight.

School was cancelled for us today, said mom Ali Sanders. There was a lot of pent-up energy in the house, so we decided to come over here to the park where I know theres a big hill and weve been sledding.

The Texas Department of Transportation reported areas of low visibility caused by blowing snow and heavy snow accumulation on some area highways, including Interstate 27 north of Tulia, State Highway 70 through the Panhandle and U.S. 87 north of Amarillo, among others.

Sanders said, I really didnt think it was gonna happen! Sometimes they say its gonna snow then we get a little bit, but this was for real this time. Its a nice little surprise.
