Local Weather History For December 2nd...
2011 (2nd-3rd): An upper level storm system tracked over the South Plains of West Texas on the 2nd. This disturbance and
abundant low level moisture created widespread freezing drizzle across the region. Light ice accumulations were quickly
observed after precipitation began. A vehicle accident with a fatality occurred on Interstate 27 in Hale County south of
Hale Center at 4:47 AM. Texas Department of Transportation officials determined that ice accumulation on a bridge was to
blame for the driver losing control of his vehicle. Later on the second and during the early morning hours of the third,
isolated thunderstorms developed. After the thunderstorms ceased, temperatures dropped to near 32° which created
icy road conditions and contributed to several vehicle accidents in the city of Lubbock on the morning of the third. No
serious injuries were reported in Lubbock. Additionally with this event, snowfall totals of less than one inch were
observed across the southwestern Texas Panhandle.
