Snow is a very rare event in Houston, so when it snows you better grab the camera.

Check out the pictures from Galveston five years ago during the Christmas Eve white out.

Houston has never seen two consecutive years with snowfall.

If we get snowfall this Friday December 4th, it would be the first time

in recorded history. The last time it snowed in Houston

was December 10, 2008. This is also the earliest snowfall since Dec 10, 1944. 

Houston could set another record for earliest snowfall with a snow event

this Friday. The last measurable snow

for both Houston and Galveston was during an cold arctic outbreak on Dec 22, 1989.

Houston saw 1.7" of snow with Galveston reporting 1.0" of the white stuff.

Galveston has been treated to a rare Christmas Eve snow as early as 2004.

Six to ten inches of snow fell South of I-10, enough to make snowmen on the Island.
