Does Lubbock get rain? Snow? Hail? What's summer weather like? Here's what four local experts had to say about weather and precipitation in Lubbock, Texas.

Someone moving to Lubbock should be prepared for dust storms. Locally, they’re known as “haboobs.” The city is also known for a drink called a “chilton.” It’s extraordinarily refreshing, yet other cities remain unaware of its existence. Consisting plainly of vodka, lemon juice, lime juice, and soda water, one would think that every bar in the nation would know the name “chilton.”

Lubbock was voted Most Extreme Weather a few years ago because you can absolutely see all four seasons in one day! It is also the home of Buddy Holly and there is a wonderful museum dedicated to his (way too short!) life. Lubbock has three universities with Texas Tech being the largest and most well-known and sports (especially football!) are HUGE in this part of Texas.

The Hub City is the home of Buddy Holly and Texas Tech University. These provide for a rich history and nightlife to explore. The faith community is vast, strong and diverse, thus Lubbock affords the faithful plenty of opportunity to join a community. Lubbock’s school system has several fantastic districts where children can get a fantastic education. Anyone moving to Lubbock has much to appreciate. They need only adjust to our flat land and constantly blowing wind.

On the South Plains, Lubbock is subject to such climatic patterns as blistering hot summers, frigid winters, and year-round strong winds. given the size of Lubbock, one should expect far fewer things to do than such major cities as San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston. However, living in Lubbock also entails paying relatively less in living expenses. Caprock Canyons and Palo Duro state parks are both only 100 miles away from Lubbock, for anyone looking to go hiking on a weekend.
