A storm moving southward through the Intermountain West will soon be causing snow in the southern tier of the country. The snow will begin in New Mexico Thursday then spread into western Texas Thursday night. The mountains of northern New Mexico could get up to 10 inches from the storm. Friday, the snow will reach into eastern Texas and Louisiana where a couple of inches are possible. Though not a big deal up north, it is quite unusual to get that much snow so far south so early in the season.

Friday night, the snow will spread into Mississippi, Alabama and northern Georgia where there also may be a whitening of the ground.
