Heavy Snowfall Accumulates in Northwest Texas

Heavy and wet snow came down on parts of Texas on Tuesday morning, January 24, accumulating several inches in Lubbock and deteriorating road conditions, the National Weather Service reported.

Chris Due said he filmed this footage on the west side of Lubbock Tuesday morning.

According to the NWS, a weather observer in Roaring Springs measured 6 inches of snow accumulation as of 8:30 am. The snow “will continue to diminish in coverage and intensity through late morning,” the NWS said.

The NWS said that Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport had received 4.8" of snow from 12 am through 6 am on Tuesday, beating the previous January 24 record, which was 2.9" of snow, set in 1961. Credit: Chris Due via Storyful
