This part of Texas saw snow during Friday's storms

Residents of Amarillo got to see a rare sight in most of Texas on Friday, snow.

AMARILLO, Texas — Most Texans know that the weather in the state can be unpredictable, but sometimes it can surprise even long term residents. At least one city in the Panhandle was lucky enough to witness a rare sight for many places in the Lone Star State on Friday: Snow.

The National Weather Service Amarillo shared a video capturing snowflakes falling outside of the Amarillo airport.

According to the NWS, temperature got down to 35 degrees, cold enough to see a mix of both snow and rain coming down. While it did not quite look like a winter wonderland, the NWS did say that snow could accumulate in grassy areas.

The NWS was not the only one to capture the snowfall however, several other residents also shared their own videos of the North Texas flurry.

Snow is not an uncommon occurrence in the northern parts of the state, such as the Texas Panhandle, but Amarillo's mini-blizzard was still enough to capture the excitement of quite a few residents.

Meanwhile, Friday's storms brought reported tornadoes in the northeast parts of Texas, including Paris and Sulphur Springs, Texas.
