I need some help!

Will someone a bit North of here please let me know if "Winter Percipitation" is the same as "Snow"? LOL

From the Nat'l Weather Service today:

"An upper level disturbance is expected to move across Texas and into southeast Texas on Friday. Much colder air will also filter into the region during the day as this disturbance moves over the area. Strong lift associated with the disturbance will combine with enough moisture and cold air so that winter precipitation will be possible across Southeast Texas during the day Friday. Precipitation will possibly start as rain but change to snow during the day as temperatures fall. This scenario remains rather uncertain since there is still some question as to when the disturbance moves over the region and how much moisture will be available for wintry precipitation. Forecasters will continue to monitor forecast data and make changes as necessary. Residents of Southeast Texas are encouraged to monitor the forecast and look for updates concerning the winter weather threat."

This could make three December's in recent years we that have had "Wintery Percipitation" on the beach. Christmas Eve 2004 and Dec. 10, 2008...it could happen... :)

On the bright side, they say that 50% of same day weather forecasts worldwide.... are wrong. So maybe you'll get some sun or cloud. What is for sure is there is a 100% chance of dark tonight.

Winter precipitation can indeed be snow but it can also be sneet and freezing rain.
