HOUSTON - Southeast Texas is no longer under any winter weather warnings.

The National Weather Service said the Hard Freeze Warning, issued from midnight to 6 a.m. Wednesday, has expired.

On Tuesday, a Winter Weather Advisory expired Tuesday afternoon for the greater Houston area.

That advisory was issued after a Winter Storm Warning expired early Tuesday morning.

The counties affected for the Hard Freeze Warning included:  Harris, Chambers, Polk, Washington, Colorado, Madison, Houston, Grimes, Austin, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, Burleson, Hardin, Brazos, Trinity, Montgomery and Liberty counties.

A mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and a few flurries continued to fall through much of Southeast Texas on Tuesday. The precipitation tapered off from west to east throughout the afternoon.

Temperatures remained near freezing Tuesday afternoon, while the area saw below-freezing temperatures in the evening and overnight.

Even though precipitation ended, driving conditions will be hazardous until temperatures rise above freezing Wednesday morning.
