As of 8 a.m. about two dozen icy spots were reported around the Houston area after snowfall overnight. Most of the impacted roadways are elevated overpasses and ramps.

Drivers were advised to use caution and possibly delay their morning commute until after the temperatures warm-up mid-morning.

The West Loop has since fully reopened.
