Many folks are still recovering from a week that will be remembered for the rest of our lives -- the cold, the ice, the snow, the dark and the worry. You might take a moment to look back at just how remarkable a week we went through in our weather history.
The National Weather Service put together a complete review and one of the first things that stuck out is that on Valentine’s Day, the ENTIRE STATE OF TEXAS went under a Winter Storm Warning. That, in itself, is record-worthy.
That warning earned its stripes, of course, as not only the winter weather materialized, but so did the cold. Here’s the timeline of temperatures:
While Bush IAH officially dropped to 13 degrees, we experienced much colder temperatures around the area. In Harris County, the lowest was in east Stafford with 3 degrees, while the coldest temp turned up in Huntsville at 1 degree.
The report has the entire list by county and you can see just how cold your temperatures were.
Finally, the timeline for that horrible week is also included:
Have a look at the report right here and settle in for some eye-opening information.
In the meantime, a cool, crisp, stellar weekend is in store so make plans to enjoy it before the foggy conditions return next week.
