Saturdayâ€™s weather will be very complex as an upper-level storm system moves right on top of, or very near the region. We will begin the day with a mixture of freezing rain, sleet and snow as temperatures below freezing occur.
As temperatures warm during the morning hours, we will see this mix changeover to scattered rain showers and even a possible thunderstorm. Another surge of Arctic air will blast into the region during the afternoon hours and quickly changeover the rain to snowfall.

On the second day of the Amarillo River Road Tournament, the Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagles split their two games and the Borger Lady Bulldogs lost to Amarillo River Road.
As a result, Sanford-Fritch and Borger will meet on Saturday in the final day of the tournament.
Sanford-Fritch 48 Randall JV 24
In the opening game on Friday, the Lady Eagles led from the opening tip off against the Randall JV Lady Raiders winning, 48-24.
Through three periods, the Borger Bulldogs had control of their game with the Clarendon Broncos in the semifinals of the Amarillo River Road Tournament.
However foul trouble, shooting woes, and a leg injury to junior Jamon Hearon resulted in the Broncos battling back to steal a 54-49 win to advance to the tournament title game against Pampa on Saturday afternoon.
The Bulldogs held a 45-37 lead going into the final period. But the Bulldogs went six minutes in the fourth period without scoring a basket and giving Clarendon the opportunity for the comeback.
December is one of the most colorful months of the year because of all the Christmas trees and lights in and around peopleâ€™s homes.
But as pretty as they are, they all can cause an uncontrolled light most people donâ€™t want to see: fire.
Hutchinson County Fire Marshal Danny Richards said the live and dry pine trees can be a fire hazard if not handled properly.
Special fire safety precautions need to be taken when keeping a live tree in the house. A burning tree can rapidly fill a room with fire and deadly gases.
