This is a special update. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch and Freeze Warning for the Houston area. Snow is expected as early as mid-morning Friday and continuing into Friday evening. There is a possibility of accumulation of 1 to 3 inches...especially in the counties closest to the coast (mainly east of the Hwy 59 corridor). Most likely place for accumulations are exposed bridges, roadways and cooler grassy areas.

The National Weather Service also noted that this will be the earliest snowfall in Houston (last year's Dec. 10th was the record for earliest) and it will be the first year for back to back years with accumulations.

I think the majority of the snow will fall between 1 and 6 pm. There will be rapid drying and clearing overnight into Saturday. But, motorists should be on the lookout for ice patches early Saturday.

Be careful everyone and enjoy!
