LUBBOCK, Texas —
Steve Corfidi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said the storm also will affect southern states and could spawn tornadoes Tuesday in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, the Florida Panhandle and Georgia.
By Monday morning, several inches of snow had fallen on much of West Texas and the Texas Panhandle, where forecasters predicted more than a foot could fall. The incoming storm sent Amarillo residents running out for last-minute supplies. Mario Delgado, 57, needed milk.
“I got all the good stuff like soup and peanut butter the other day,” Delgado told the Amarillo Globe-News. “We’re used to it here.”
He added: “As long as you got plenty of clothes and the right kind of shoes, you’ll be alright.”
