    Most snowfall recorded in the Texas Panhandle along the New Mexico border.

    Parts of Texas have received up to 10 inches of snow after a storm clipped the far northwest part of the state the day before the official start of winter.

    The National Weather Service had a blizzard warning and winter weather advisory in effect until midday Tuesday for the Amarillo area, in the Texas Panhandle.

    The Dalhart Independent School District called off classes Tuesday after the area received up to 7 inches of snow. The National Weather Service says flurries were still falling Tuesday in Dalhart, located 30 miles south of the Oklahoma state line.

    Forecaster Todd Beal told The Associated Press that 10 inches of snow fell since Monday outside Texline, near the border with New Mexico.

    Beal says the system was moving east Tuesday.
