LUBBOCK (AP) - Some schools in West Texas have delayed opening due to winter weather that left behind nearly 3 inches of snow.
Texas Tech University in Lubbock canceled morning classes Monday and ordered the regular schedule to resume at noon amid freezing temperatures and misty conditions.
Schools in San Angelo were starting two hours late due to the threat of icy roads.
The National Weather Service in Lubbock says the area received 2.8 inches of snow Sunday. Forecaster Andrew Pritchett says Amarillo received 1.7 inches of snow.
Pritchett says the wintry conditions were moving out of West Texas and the Panhandle on Monday.
Forecasters say the Dallas-Fort Worth area faced a chance of snow and light sleet Monday.
