The welcome sign entering the City of Aransas Pass from the south was covered in a three- to four-inch blanket of snow Friday morning, Dec. 8 due to a wintry mix of rain and snow which occurred over South Texas. In addition to snow, areas around the Southern Coastal Bend experienced a rare phenomenon, Thundersnow which first began around 12:30 a.m. and continued off and on through approximately 6 a.m. producing heavier bands, resulting in moderate snowfall. Most of the southern Coastal Bend saw at least one inch of snow, with the highest amounts occurring in the heavier convective bands of snow over portions of San Patricio. Because of these convective bands, some areas such as Aransas Pass received more than three inches of snow.
