HOUSTON – Freezing temperatures are expected for communities north of Houston overnight Tuesday and Wednesday, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.
Just after noontime Tuesday, some residents in Grimes and Montgomery Counties reported seeing large snowflakes in the sky. Garner says the temperatures are too warm for the flakes to stick to the ground, but some of this precipitation could fall closer to the city in the coming hours.
"In the atmosphere, it's cold enough for there to be snow and sleet," said Garner. "We have a very cold core of air right over Southeast Texas, bringing us a perfect mix for frozen precipitation."
There’s a 40-percent chance for precipitation this afternoon with a forecast high of 42 degrees.
Wednesday the skies will be clear with early morning temperatures around 32 degrees and daytime temps near 50.
Thursday morning will be even colder – around 29 degrees.
The clouds stay mostly clear through the weekend as temperatures start to approach 70 degrees again by the start of the next workweek.
