Over the weekend, the exciting “winter weather word” -- the one that begins with “S” -- has been flurried about over social media. The latest word from me is “Snowpe,” as in “Nope.” Still, a strong cold front is poised to move through, so let’s talk about first, WHEN.

Here’s the latest synoptic forecast showing the front on Wednesday morning and Thursday morning:

Original timing first had the front in here overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, but there’s been a slowdown. Wednesday evening looks to be when the actual front gets here. The latest European model shows only a quick blip of possible snow north of Austin and nowhere near here:

The American Model concurs with any frozen precip well west of Houston. Watch the blue and purple colors indicating ice and snow:
