Snow in Houston and Galveston, Texas

By Jason Samenow

Here we sit near 60 degrees in the D.C. metro region and it's snowing all the way down to the Gulf coast in southeast Texas. Galveston and Houston, Tx. reported snow in the last hour with temperatures of 34 and 33, respectively. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for both of these cities:

SURFACE TEMPERATURES HAVE DROPPED TO FREEZING ACROSS THE AREA. LIGHT SNOW MELTING ON CONTACT WITH THE GROUND HAS BEGUN TO FREEZE ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES. LIGHT ACCUMULATION OF ICE WILL OCCUR ON ELEVATED ROADWAY SURFACE SUCH AS BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES. THE SNOW IS EXPECTED TO END BETWEEN MIDNIGHT AND 4 AM CST.

See pictures at the Houston Chronicle. The snow will spread into Louisiana and as far south and east as Hattiesburg, Mississippi where several inches of snow may fall and a Winter Storm Warning is in effect. Will we see any snow? See our full forecast.
