Today a wintry mix is in the viewing area, with heavy snow over the north-central and northeastern KCBD viewing area.
With recent and forecast temperatures, there will be little if any snow or ice accumulation on Lubbock roads, but as always elevated surfaces (such as bridges, overpass, the flyover, stairs, decks) are at more risk of ice. Use caution and anticipate slick spots.
In the northern KCBD viewing area moderate to heavy snow has fallen and more is expected, with significant accumulations creating hazardous travel conditions. In the eastern Panhandles travel may become impossible with roads becoming snowbound, including I-40 and I-27.
This afternoon the precipitation type will tend to be snow, but will be ending
form southwest to northeast.
Tonight skies will clear, winds will drop off - and so will temperatures.
Ash Wednesday morning will be fair and cold; the afternoon sunny with seasonably mild temperatures.
