It's snowing! Here's what that looks like in Austin
(Jeannette DeMario)

In a rare event only seen every so many years, Central Texas residents are experiencing the icy touch of snow—and they couldn't be happier.

Snowy weather is rolling through Austin after a storm dropped temperatures to the 30s. A winter weather advisory was put in place from early Sunday morning until midnight.


The last time Austinites saw snow, more like flurries, was in February 2020. And before that, it hadn't snowed since 2017.

Not all parts of town have been gifted with snow yet, but the National Weather Service reports some parts will reach up to 4 inches of snow with most only 1-2 inches.

For some Austinites, the snow is a reminder of their faraway homes that see an abundance of snow yearly.

And in the joyful snow pics, one of the most dog-friendly cities in the U.S. didn't leave their dogs out of the fun.




And aside from fur babies, some Austin children made sure they got their chance in the snow.
