Icey roadways possible this afternoon through Thurs. morning

A dicey situation today, Wed. 2/9 as light freezing rain is falling (as I write this post) at locations as close in to Houston as Tomball.

Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect this afternoon. If you are driving anywhere this afternoon, except the immediate coast, be especially careful about driving over bridges and overpasses. Pay attention as temperatures will continue to drop as cold air filters into the area with a cold front. At the same time, a drying trend will begin with rain/sleet ending area wide by 6 pm.

Problems to watch out for overnight and early Thursday are any locations which have ice remaining. Temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 20s across most of the area tonight.

So, take side roads if needed and if possible, just stay home.
