Snowy weather hits Crossroads area

December 5, 2011

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 — without the snow — are being forecast for Tuesday — with temperatures expected to begin warming up Wednesday and Thursday.
Oncor Electric Delivery experienced some problems during the early morning hours, possibly due to excess strain on power lines due to the snow. According to Oncor officials, the outage was mostly on the west side of Big Spring, affecting approximately 1,600 homes, with smaller outages being reported at various points in the city throughout the morning.
Many area school delayed morning classes, opting to begin their days at 10 a.m. instead of their normal times. Big Spring, Coahoma, Forsan, Stanton, Grady, Sands, Howard College and SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf began classes at 10 a.m. Lakeview Headstart cancelled its classes for the day.
A number of businesses were closed and events postponed, including STAAR End of Course Exams and New Graduation Requirements Meeting for Parents of 9th Grade Students tonight.
