Lubbock wins America's Toughest Weather City 2013

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The contest which began on March 19, 2013 with 64 cities has finally come to a conclusion. When the dust cleared at 3 a.m. on Friday, Lubbock had won America's Toughest Weather City 2013 with nearly 66% of the vote.

Lubbock went head-to-head with Fairbanks, Alaska in a contest divided up like the NCAA Basketball Tourney. It was split into four regions: Northeast, Midwest, South and West. Lubbock conquered the South after beating Dallas and defeated Midwest winner and 2011 champion, Fargo, N.D. to make it to the finals.

In this friendly contest sponsored by The Weather Channel, odds were not stacked in Lubbock's favor. But contest monitors attribute Lubbock's surge to the front due to media buzz, not to mention the daily drastically changing weather.

Lubbock and Fairbanks are almost polar opposites in terms of weather with Lubbock once reaching temps of 114 degrees and Fairbanks touching -66.
