Episode Narrative An upper level storm system pushed from the Great Basin through the central Rockies and onto the Southern Plains on the 12th. Relatively warm and moist air overspread a low level arctic airmass entrenched across West Texas. This system brought widespread significant snowfall to the region throughout the entire day. Snow and sleet showers began over the western South Plains during the pre-dawn hours. Snowfall then spread to the rest of the South Plains by the rest of the morning and then to the Rolling Plains by the mid-afternoon. Several brief and scattered heavy snow showers brought up to one inch per hour snowfall rates during the afternoon and evening. Most snow tapered off late in the evening but light freezing drizzle and sleet persisted into the early morning hours of the 13th. Numerous traffic accidents were reported throughout the region with a majority of incidents occurring in Lubbock.
