Lubbock, TX (KCBD) – Rain, sleet and snow dropped to the ground throughout the day across the South Plains. Most of the half inch of snow that fell Monday night across the City of Lubbock has melted. Up to two inches of snow accumulated areas outside city limits.
Rainfall broke a record Monday making it the 7th wettest start of a year. Those rain drops left puddles of standing water on many streets forcing drivers to splash through intersections.
City street crews blocked 114th Street between Indiana and Quaker, 98th Street between Milwaukee and Upland. Crews decided the intersection at North Flint and Harvard was too dangerous for drivers to cross but say the drainage system did its job and kept up with the rain as it fell throughout the day.
Most of the precipitation is not expected to freeze, but roads may be slushy in some areas.
