EL PASO - Up to eight inches of snow, with isolated amounts approaching 10 inches, are expected across West Texas as a winter storm moves across the region from northern Mexico.

Snow flurries fell in North and Central Texas with little accumulation. Areas southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including Brownwood and Stephenville, received enough wintry weather to leave a light blanket of flurries on the ground Friday morning.

As the storm moved into North Texas, the flurries turned into a light rain.

A winter storm warning was in effect through Thursday night for the area of West Texas west of the Pecos River.

As snow began falling in the El Paso area Thursday, portions of at least three roads were closed and Fort Bliss and the University of Texas at El Paso closed.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest snow, with 8 to 10 inches accumulating, is expected in the Davis and Guadalupe Mountains.
