Snow for Houston!/Ghostbusters in Galveston

Okay's the's going to snow Friday afternoon into Friday evening. Probably no accumulations except on exposed surfaces Friday evening because the temperatures the ground will still be too warm. This will not be a pipe freezing situation. Just looked at the latest data and the 1000-500 mb thicknesses and 850 mb temperatures should be low enough to support snow. That combined with an approaching upper storm and enough moisture will all snow as early as early afternoon Friday. This reminds of last December 10th...see my photos way down on the right. It will be short lived just as that was with skies clearing by Saturday morning.

For Houston on Thursday, it will be a chilly day with sunshine. Friday will be cloudy with cold rain turning to snow/rain mix and then snow. Saturday will be sunny and cool with light freeze early. Then some clouds return Sunday with a slight warmup.

In the nation on Thursday, look for highs in the teens over the northern Plains and some snow from the western Great Lakes to Denver. Southern Florida will be balmy in the 80s. Cold air will be in the Rockies, Plains, Great Lakes and Midwest. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s west coast and southern and eastern states.

Let's do snow or nieve , pronounced knee-EH-vay. Let it nieve, let it nieve, let it nieve...doesn't exactly roll off the tongue does it?

No need to head out shopping for the youngsters on your list. Just order send me an email to and enjoy the pre-Christmas special (through Dec. 22nd) to get our award winning volume 1 DVD or newly released volume 2 DVD of the Frank & Paco series for $10 (even--that includes the tax in Texas--outside of Texas it will be even lower than $10) and free shipping. I will send it to you and you can mail me a check or money order.

Or you can order via the following web sites for a higher amount:,,,, or By the way, I found the DVD on the shelves on another Barnes & Noble store (this one in Sugar Land).

I was so proud of my hurricane expert buddy Lew Fincher, who appeared in Tuesday night's Ghostbusters on Discovery Channel. He was just there to give historical details about the hurricane history of Galveston. The Ghostbusters were checking out some ghostly goings on at The Galvez Hotel. A few years ago, I heard that the new Holiday Inn on the east side is even more haunted. But, I couldn't find anything about it on the net. What I did find is a cool site with all kinds of hauntings in Texas. Check it out:


Have a terrific Thursday!
