In Amarillo, the temperature early Saturday dropped to 3 degrees, equaling a mark from 2005. Similarly, Borger tied its record low mark of 5, also from 2005.

Highs at Abilene (25) and San Angelo (31) on Friday were the lowest ever for Dec. 6, breaking marks from 1972.

A half-inch of snow Thursday in Wichita Falls is the most ever since records began in 1897. A trace of snow at Waco was the most for Friday since 1944.

And 0.4 inches of snow Friday at Dallas-Fort Worth is a record. Previously, a trace was reported in 1969.
