Snow In The Deep South


Temperatures in the Houston, TX area were up near 80° yesterday…and then a cold front moved through!  Afternoon temperatures in southeast Texas today were almost 50° colder with readings in the 30s.  Adding a wintry look to the dramatic temperature drop, an area of low pressure at the surface and in the upper atmosphere is tracking through the region changing yesterday’s severe thunderstorms to today’s rare snowfall.  At 6pm CST, Houston’s Hobby airport reported light snow with a temperature just above freezing.  Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for most of southeast Texas and southwestern Louisiana.  Light snow and ice accumulations overnight will make travel difficult all the way to the gulf coast, where Hurricane Ike made landfall almost exactly 3 months ago (September 13th).  Here in Maryland we’ll be keeping a close eye on this storm as it head north Thursday.  This same system may bring snow showers to our area as it pulls away Friday morning.
