Winter weather moves into Houston area

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6 a.m. Monday.

HOUSTON — Sunday's the day we had been watching and parts of the area received snow!  Here's what remains, as far as advisories and warnings: 

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Grimes, Madison, Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker and Washington Counties. It lasts until 6 a.m. Monday morning.

A Winter Storm Warning is issued when significant winter weather is expected and travel is considered difficult or impossible. In the Houston area, that means more than two inches of snow is expected, more than half-inch of sleet and more than an eighth of an inch of ice from freezing rain with sleet or snow.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Austin, Waller and Montgomery Counties. It also lasts until 6 a.m. Monday.

A Winter Storm Advisory means winter precipitation – ranging from snow, ice, sleet or a combination – is expected, but conditions aren’t expected to be hazardous enough for a warning.

How rare is snow in Houston?

Yeah, we're not so much known for blizzards, but getting a few snowflakes in Houston might not be as rare as you think.  KHOU Chief Meteorologist David Paul breaks it down.

Fun fact: This is the first time in 6.9 years that a Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the Houston area. But there was a Winter Storm Warning issued in 2018. 

Snow in other parts of Texas

Snow has been falling in west Texas. Here's a shot this morning from Abilene. We're seeing images from all over the state.  Check them out!

We'll continue to add photos from our sister stations across the state s more snow falls.
