LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Rising temperatures during the day are helping to melt Lubbock’s record snowfall from the weekend, but the amount of melting has also given way to overnight refreezing.

Because of another night of refreezing concerns, the City of Lubbock’s LBKAlert sent a message Monday afternoon warning residents to take precautions when driving overnight Monday and on Tuesday morning.

Water left on the roadways from melting snow is expected to refreeze tonight causing icy streets, which were a factor in many vehicle wrecks. If you must travel tonight through the morning, please be cautious and drive slow. The City of Lubbock Streets Department will continue to treat the main roads through tomorrow morning.
LBKAlert - 12/10/18 - 4:28 p.m.
