HOUSTON – Cold air has settled into Southeast Texas and will be sticking around for a while. We are in the beginning of the longest stretch of cold weather that has hit Houston so far this season.
Saturday temperatures are running colder than average for the beginning of January. Average highs for the first week of January are in the low 60s. Although it is chilly at least gorgeous sunshine is sticking around... for today.
Changes this weekend
Saturday will be sunny, chilly and dry. The changes start on Sunday with showers moving in Sunday morning. Steady rain will move in Sunday afternoon with heavier rain Sunday night. As we head into late Sunday, temperatures will start to drop and wintry precipitation will be getting close to Southeast Texas! The forecast is still uncertain and will continue to change but there is a chance for sleet or even wet snow flakes in the Metro Area north of I-10. The best chance for snow and sleet will be in our northern counties.
Accumulations will be insignificant in Southeast Texas but snow will accumulate north and northwest of our area.
Drivers traveling through Texas should take caution Sunday with winter weather moving through.
After Sunday’s rain/snow mix event, the rest of the ten day forecast shows a cooler than normal start with plenty of sunshine for the week ahead.
