EL PASO, Texas — (AP) - Some parts of Texas won't be dreaming of a white Christmas. El Paso awoke to snow covered roads and yards Friday while other West Texas cities and the central portion of the state are expected to get their own snowfall by this weekend.
The National Weather Service reports El Paso has received between 1.5 and 2 inches of snow thanks to a storm system that came in from Arizona.
El Paso police reported some sections of Interstate 10 had been reduced to one lane and officers had responded to a rash of accidents.
The storm system was expected to move through West and Central Texas, bringing snow to Lubbock, the Midland-Odessa area, as well as Abilene and San Angelo by either Friday evening or Saturday morning.
