WESLACO – All eyes were on the weather while parts of the Rio Grande Valley were blanketed with snow.

The wintery weather advisories have since expired.

One of the first places to see snow was out west in Starr County. Early Friday morning, some areas north of Rio Grande City were hit hard. Since then, it has held still and turned into a light drizzle.

Another area hit by snow was Port Isabel. The area wasn’t expected to receive snow.

TxDOT officials said there are no plans to close down the causeway. The only time they do is if winds reach over 45 miles an hour.

Some shops in Port Isabel are currently closed.

The last time the Valley saw snow was in 2004 on Christmas Eve.
