Its called a snownado. There's also a phenomenon called thunder snow--a snow storm with thunder and lightening. Not just a Texas thing. I suppose, if you're from the south, it might seem a bit odd, but farther north, its a yearly event----yawn.

Excellent choice of maps, by the way. This is how it happens. Warmer air meets colder air, chaos ensues. On the east side of watch area, you get the usual. On the western side you still have the lift and energy but with the temp. drop you get snow.
