First post...over here to the East north of Beaumont by about 30 miles...light mix temp right at 32 degrees. Wind still cranking out of the North to Northeast. WEATHER CHANNEL NAMES THIS STORM KRONOS...STORM CONDITION FOR HOUSTON EAST A 7/10. Now The Weather Channel does not name a bust! LOL. Local Met / Greg Bostwick isat 90% thru tomorrow morning. Says a transition to all snow likely after midnight north of I-10 and 3:00am south...he is pretty conservative so I will give him credence.

We've had on and off sleet for several hours. Elevated roadways and bridges here in the metro are all pretty much iced over and dangerous. Numerous roadways closed in the north part of town due to their elevated structure. The closest snow reports have been in Lampasas. No snow in Austin yet. But the sleet has already made traffic a nightmare and the APD and Travis County Sheriffs are begging people to stay off the roads.

Hmmm Dew Point at IAH is 33 and the temp is 35. Will the dew point drop as well?

The evening update from Hou/Galv has me a little less optimistic for those folks north of I-10.

THE COASTAL COUNTIES AND AT THE BEACHES. WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN
