UNDATED -- Fall weather finally came to Texas Thursday, ending an unseasonably warm November with a taste of winter-like conditions.

The National Weather Service says as many as 4 inches of snow fell in the Abilene area. Abilene police say there were no road closures Thursday evening, but the heavy snowfall did lead to some minor weather-related traffic accidents.

Parts of North Texas, the Panhandle and West Texas saw light snowfall with little to no accumulation. A meteorlogist with the National Weather Service says recent warm temperatures kept the ground warm and the snow melting.

More snow is in the forecast Friday for the Panhandle. There's a 50 percent chance of snow in the Amarillo area.

But the cold front across North Texas was a quick-moving system that should move out by early Friday morning.
