HOUSTON -- Much of Southeast Texas, including Houston, received a quick blast of snow and sleet that moved in from the west early Thursday, making the roads wet for the morning commute.

A Winter Weather Advisory was in effect until 10 a.m. for most of the KHOU 11 viewing area.

"It's still too warm for any of this to accumulate, but drivers on the northside may want to use caution on bridges and overpasses," said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.

Most of the precipitation quickly moved east of Houston by 7 a.m.

The chance for rain and sleet decreases as the morning progresses, leaving us with a cloudy Thursday afternoon with temperatures in the low-40s.

Friday’s weather will be similar – a chilly morning with a slight chance for rain and sleet.

A few clouds will carry over into Saturday as warmer daytime temps return. The skies will be clearer on Sunday as we head back into the low-60s.

Looking to next week, a good chance for rain returns on Tuesday.
