Winter weather warnings have been issued for Houston
Winter weather warning:
The National Weather Service has placed Southeast Texas in a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m. Monday. Freezing rain, freezing drizzle and sleet are expected. Buildups will vary from glaze to as little as a tenth of an inch possible. Winter precipitation can cause icy and slippery spots, especially on bridges and overpasses, so drive carefully.
The sidewalks can also get somewhat slippery, so walk with caution!
Wind chill warning:
A wind chill advisory has been in place for locations mainly north of I-10 from midnight tonight through 9 a.m. Monday for wind chill values up to 10 degrees. This will likely continue again into Tuesday morning and may include Harris County.
MLK Day Monday:
Waking up to low temperatures in the 30s in Houston and areas north of the city are only in the 20s. The City of Houston has postponed the MLK Day Parade and MLK Boulevard Cruise due to hazardous winter weather.
The threat of rain and sleet will make travel treacherous at times. This forecast depends largely on how the temperatures go, if temperatures stay in the mid to upper 30s, we will receive cold rain. If its temperature is below freezing, it will create a very dangerous mess on the roads. We will keep you informed of this very important element of the forecast.
Tuesday morning temperatures:
The cold air keeps coming. Wake up Tuesday morning to temperatures in the teens and twenties with a chance of temperatures in the low to single digits.
Wednesday morning temperatures:
The coldest air arrives Wednesday morning. This type of temperature will cause exposed, unprotected pipes to burst.
10 day forecast:
We move out of the 30s Wednesday afternoon. We track another cold front on Friday of next week. This will lead to more freezing temperatures next weekend, so keep your pipes insulated!
