Does It Snow in Texas?

Snowfall occurs in Texas, as it did in Dallas during February 2014, according to CBS News. Annual snowfall occurs during the winter months in northern and western Texas, Wikipedia reports. These areas are subject to snow because they experience colder winters than other parts of the state.

During February 2014, less than one inch of snowfall led to more than 500 traffic accidents in the Dallas area, according to CBS News. This event exhibits how rare snowfall is in most areas of the state, causing people to be unprepared for winter storms. Even areas in the southernmost part of Texas experience snow during rare cold fronts.
