Photographs, and video of falling snow flurry from all across Starr County have been flooding social media since the early morning hours of Friday, January 24. Temperatures in the area began to drop early Thursday evening, and currently hover at around 40° Fahrenheit.
According to one website, a snow flurry is a brief gust of wind accompanied by a light burst of snow, which does not usually remain lying on the ground. Often, snow flurries indicate that a more serious weather front is on the way.
Generally, snow from flurries does not produce a ground covering, as it melts on contact with the surface, and will disappear almost as quickly as it appeared. Especially in temperate climates, this phenomenon can be quite exciting, because people usually only see rain or occasional sleet in the winter.
