A sudden onslaught of winter weather turned the historic spring in Comanche Trail Park into a snowy wonderland overnight, as lower temperatures and high humidity dropped several inches of snow on the Crossroads area during the early morning hours Monday.
More snow is expected throughout today, with the high temperature only expected to creep above freezing at 33 degrees. Tonight's low could dip as low as 26 degrees. Similar temperatures â€” without the snow â€” are being forecast for Tuesday â€” with temperatures expected to begin warming up Wednesday and Thursday.
