Driving conditions are pretty good around the area now. There's a lot of snow on Lubbock residential streets but major roads and highways are clearer. Travel is good now but it'll become a skating rink in parts of the area tonight, with the temperature dropping to the lower 20s, possibly upper teens.


updated 9:01 a.m. - Snow totals are now up to 4" to 9" around Lubbock. Keep in mind average annual snowfall in Lubbock is 8.2".

You can make it around Lubbock streets if needed, but the side streets are snow-packed. Highways are in a little bit better shape, but still real slow with plenty of snow. Lubbock Police advise not to drive if you don't need to.


posted 6:44 a.m. - Overnight precipitation changed over to snow and has accumulated on the roads. Be careful and drive slowly if you must get on the roadways today. They are drivable, just expect lots of snow and ice. As of this morning we have picked up 1" to 3" of snow around much of the area, but here in Lubbock it's been more.

Through 6 a.m. 4" has been recorded at the Lubbock Airport, 6" off the South Loop according to the National Weather Service. And it's still falling.

Here are some other totals relayed from the NWS Lubbock office through 6:30 a.m.:
Farwell 0.2"
Caprock Canyons 1"
Muleshoe 1"

TODAY: The snow will come to an end later morning and clear west to east. Staying cloudy and cold with the highs in the 30s, some models are keeping Lubbock around the freezing mark all afternoon. 

TONIGHT: Low dropping to the lower 20s, with some melting of the snow possible today this will lead so some slick areas as the moisture re-freezes tonight. If you'll be driving tonight, take your time getting to your destination and have a safety kit ready in case you get stuck. There also may be some areas of fog/ freezing fog to reduce visibility going into the early morning hours. 

SUNDAY: Sunny and warmer to help melt the snow, high in the mid 40s.

NEXT WEEK: Warmer into mid week then another storm system will bring colder temperatures by Thursday. This also may bring some precipitation by late week, nothing looking too impressive. This system will bring some higher wind speeds instead.

Be safe and warm today! Robert will be keeping you updated this afternoon.
