ABILENE, Texas -

Snow is headed for parts of the Big Country and Concho Valley as the first winter storm of 2013 moves in Thursday night.

We are currently tracking an upper level storm system that could bring flurries to our western areas around San Angelo by 5 p.m. Thursday evening.

As this system moves east through Texas snow chances will increase for our area.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from 9 p.m. Thursday through 9 a.m. Friday due to the accumulating snow and ice that may cause travel difficulties.

That Advisory includes Brown, Callahan, Concho, Coleman, Coke, McCulloch, Nolan, Runnels, Sterling, Taylor and Tom Green counties.

Largest snowfall totals up to 3 inches are expected around San Angelo and Sterling City in the Concho Valley.

Most of the Big Country around and south of I-20 can expect 1-2 inches of mainly snow but we could see a little sleet mix in.

Please monitor this situation if you have travel plans Friday morning as roads will likely be slippery in advisory areas.

If you are north of I-20 a light dusting of snow is possible for you.
