Models this morning continue the trend of ticking northward and every little tick northward shifts the potential heavy snow and accumulating snow a tad further north. However, still appears that significant widespread moderate to heavy snowfall is expected in areas not accustomed to it. The snow is already ongoing in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex and I admit that as of Wednesday, I anticipated the heavy snow setting up just to its south. That isn’t my thought, now. Looks like the Metroplex will see 4″ to 8″ of snow today into tonight. This heavy snow band will continue to shift eastward tonight and into Friday. It will also expand in coverage. So here is my updated snowfall accumulation forecast:
The 1″ boundary will encompass:

Clovis, NM-Childress, TX-Chickasha, OK-Ft. Smith, AR-Hot Springs, AR-Rosedale, MS-Aberdeen, MS-Arab, AL-Chattanooga, TN-Along the South Carolina/North Carolina Border to the Coast on the northern edge. On the southern edge Savannah, GA-Tifton, GA-Tallahassee, FL-Gulf Shores, AL-Slidell, LA-Turkey Creek, LA-Waco, TX-Hobbs, NM

The 3″ boundary will encompass:

Wichita Falls, TX-Wynnewood, OK-Mena, AR-Eudora, AR-Macon, MS-Tuscaloosa, AL-Pell City, AL- Centre-AL-Dalton, GA-Augusta, GA-Charleston, SC-Macon, GA-Dothan, AL-Mobile, AL-Alexandria, LA-Nacogdoches, TX-Hillsboro, TX-Eastland, TX-Wichita Falls, TX

The 6″ and locally up to 10″ boundary will encompass:

Longview, TX-Atlanta, TX-Vicksburg, MS-Jackson, MS- Meridian, MS-Alexander City, AL-Auburn, AL-Atmore, AL-Hattiesburg, MS-Natchez, MS-Mt. Enterprise, TX-Tyler, TX-Longview, TX
