HOUSTON—It will be a “tricky travel day” because of a broad, icy cold system that is moving across our region, KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson said. There is snow in north Texas and icy conditions and rain in other parts, so travelers need to beware.

“If you are traveling north of Huntsville, north of College Station or Brenham today, that is where you can start to see some ice develop on the roads,” Johnson said. “If you don’t have to make that trip, I would go ahead and eliminate it this weekend just to be on the safe side. If you have to travel north, getting into the Dallas area, then just make sure you’re taking it extremely slow and know what to expect as far as the icing on the roads.”

Here in Houston, lows kicked off in the 30s Friday and highs are expected to top off in the low-40s.

For the next several days our overnight lows will be in the 30s and 40s and our afternoon highs won’t be much warmer. In fact, Saturday will be the coldest day of the weekend.

The chance for rain lasts through the weekend and for the start of your next workweek.
