Ron Roberts Predicts Between 1 to 4 Inches of Snow for Lubbock
Before we know it on Wednesday afternoon (February 2nd), there should be some snow falling across Lubbock and the South Plains. In addition to at least two days of below freezing temperatures, overnight lows are set to be 10 degrees or less for three consecutive nights.
Monday afternoon, Ron Roberts tweeted two different forecast models for this week's projected snowfall in Lubbock and across the South Plains.
This first forecast model is the one that Roberts says has the highest chance of happening for Wednesday into Thursday. You'll notice that the highest projected snowfall totals in our part of West Texas are actually in Snyder and Midland at 6 inches. Then at the Texas-New Mexico border, snowfall for Wednesday into Thursday is forecast to be between 2.6 to 3.4 inches. Lubbock's snow total could reach 3.9 inches, then get higher as you move south and east from Lubbock.
Roberts also tweeted out a second map that shows a more conservative forecast for most of the area.
