Big and fluffy snowflakes fell across parts of south Texas on Thursday, including San Antonio and Austin.
While snow is common in parts of north Texas, it’s unusual for this region to see snowfall and people shared their delight on social media.
“A Texas Christmas miracle!” one person posted on Twitter.
Renee Santos, a reporter at CNN affiliate KABB, danced in the falling flakes exclaiming, “it was 80 degrees two days ago and now it’s snowing!”
Even this pup, Rooney, couldn’t hold his excitement when he was reunited with the white stuff he used to play with in Amarillo, a city in the Texas panhandle.
Snow blanketed cars at a dealership in San Antonio.
This rare snow event isn’t over yet. It’s moving farther south to cities like Corpus Christi and Brownsville. They are expected to get snow throughout the night with 2-3 inches possible around Corpus Christi.
Corpus Christi has only had eight days on record with measurable snow (0.1″) dating back to 1948. Last time the city saw snow was Christmas eve 2004 and that was their greatest snowfall on record with 2.3 inches.
Sorry, JJ Watt, it doesn’t look like this snow will be heading to Houston.
