Re: JANUARY 2018 - Winter Storm/Hard Freeze Warnings

This was supposed to be a "warmer/dryer," winter eh.... ;) I'll take the blame for that. I told everyone on the Storm2K forum last winter that since I had the winter of my dreams (warm and dry) that this winter would be very cold and icy across Texas to compensate them for a lack of winte...

Re: JANUARY 2018 - Winter Storm/Hard Freeze Warnings

The snow was always expected to end by around 6pm, so it's no surprise that we are seeing the precip taper off on radar.

Re: JANUARY 2018 - Winter Storm/Hard Freeze Warnings

Here's a movie of the snow and me in the sleet. Some of the flakes are large (nickle-sized). Nothing too heavy. Video is 144mb and may take a bit to load before it plays.

Re: JANUARY 2018 - Winter Storm Warning/Advisory For Tuesday

I left work early so that I wasn't trapped by Hobby Airport this afternoon. It's 26 degrees with a steady light sleet in SW Houston. Sleet is gathering at the base of our oak tree. Individual sleet pellets are rather small, as they're forming more from drizzle than light rain. No sign of any snowfla...

Re: JANUARY 2018 - Winter Storm Warning/Advisory For Tuesday

35 in SW Houston (Westbury). I have toiletries and a change of clothes plus my ski jacket in my car. Don't know if I'll be able to make it home from work near Hobby airport around 4pm. I'm thinking surface streets will be OK. I could take W. Belfort from I-45 north of Hobby all the way west to my ho...

Re: JANUARY 2018 - Winter Storm Warning/Advisory For Tuesday

I'm thinking that total liquid precip amounts across Houston will not be high, perhaps up to around .25 inch. However, much of this precip may fall when road temperatures on bridges and overpasses are at 32f or colder. This would result in bridges and overpasses getting a glazing of ice by tomorrow ...

Re: JANUARY 2018 - Time to talk about some real cold?

Overnight Euro certainly does paint a cold and snowy picture for SE TX next Tue/Wed. This time, though, it is forecasting surface temperatures well below freezing during the precip. This could lead to major travel issues Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday - IF it happens. One thing appears certain, it ...
