December 9, 2018

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Residents in parts of West and North Texas continue digging out of a winter storm that dumped more than 10 inches of snow in some locations.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports Lubbock received more than 10 inches of snow from late Friday through Saturday.

The National Weather Service says Littlefield, northwest of Lubbock, got 9 inches, while Abilene and Wichita Falls each recorded 3 inches of snow.

The snowfall resulted in various closures and postponements. At Texas Tech University in Lubbock, final exams on Saturday were postponed for a day.

Officials in Lubbock say local roadways became quickly passable after the storm thanks to temperatures climbing above freezing and efforts to pre-treat roads before the wintry weather hit.
