FLOYD COUNTY, TX – A blanket of snow covered the county early this morning as a winter storm moved through the area.

Though most of the area is under a Winter Storm Warning from the National Weather Service (NWS-Lubbock), temperatures are expected to climb back into the 40s on Wednesday to expedite the melting process.
