LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Record snow in Lubbock with 11 inches from late Saturday through early Monday morning.

The heavy snow was not just in Lubbock. According to the Lubbock weather office totals range from 4 inches in Crosbyton to a whopping 20 inches in Friona. In addition to the snow amounts snow drifts range from 1-4 feet in Lubbock and from 7 to 10 feet in areas along the Texas/New Mexico border.

The 11 inch mark for Lubbock is now the 3rd greatest amount in a 1-2 day period over the last 50 years.

All of this snow will combine to keep road conditions hazardous through Wednesday, if not into Thursday. So, travel is being discouraged and slushy areas will re-freeze and combine with fog to make driving very hazardous through mid-day Wednesday.
