After light snow, more cold to come

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Overnight a band of moderate snow moved from northwest to southeast across the South and Low Rolling Plains. Snow amounts, however, were limited due to the band's rapid speed. Much of the KCBD viewing received at least a dusting of snow. The Lubbock airport reported 0.3 of an inch. A few areas received around a half-inch, with the greatest amounts over the northwest viewing area where around to a little over one inch was reported.

There are a few school delays over the northwest KCBD viewing area, where the heaviest snowfall occurred. For the latest reports check out our home page, kcbd.com.
