Record Snowfall Blankets West Texas as 'Powerful' Winter Storm Moves Through

Several inches of snow covered parts of west Texas early on Tuesday, January 24, as a “powerful” winter storm moved across the southern US, the National Weather Service (NWS) reported.

Footage by Raymundo Macias shows snow blanketing the ground in Denver City.

The NWS said that Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport had received 4.8" of snow from 12 am through 6 am on Tuesday, beating the previous January 24 record, which was 2.9" of snow, set in 1961.

The Texas Department of Transportation warned drivers to “take it slow” and to “postpone travel until conditions improve.” Credit: Raymundo Macias via Storyful
