ROAD CONDITIONS: Ice still being reported on Houston-area roads with more wintry weather possible

A truck drives past a highway sign Monday, Feb. 15, 2021, in Houston. A frigid blast of winter weather across the U.S. plunged Texas into an unusually icy emergency Monday that knocked out power to more than 2 million people and shut down grocery stores and dangerously snowy roads.

As the Houston-area braces for another round of wintry precipitation, drivers are continuing to be warned to stay off the road as much as possible. Houston TranStar lists more than 190 icy spots and the city of Katy Office of Emergency Management warns Interstate 10 is currently experiencing ‘very icy’ conditions.

Avoid traveling if you can. If you have to drive, take it very slow and check your route before you go. Harris County’s OEM is warning about the hazards of black ice which is very hard to see when you’re driving.
