Week's Weather/Winter Storm Photos/Favorite Super Bowl Snack

Very cold start to the week for the northern plains and Great Lakes with highs near zero in North Dakota and single digits to teens elsewhere in the area. Look for snow around the Great Lakes and southward to Cincinnati. Also some snow showers around Boise Idaho. Some thunderstorms are possible from New Orleans into Florida. Pleasant for California and the southwest with highs in the 60s and 70s (except New Mexico will be in the 30s and 40s). The southeast and southern plains will have highs mainly in the 50s while the Pacific Northwest will have highs in the 40s and the Rockies will be mainly in the 30s. The Northeast will have highs in the 20s and 30s while the East Coast will have highs in the 40s and 50s. The Midwest and Ohio Valley will have highs in the 20s and 30s.

Nice warmup this Sunday in Houston. But a new cold front arrives in a few hours. Might get a sprinkle or too. Today was the first day in 5 days that the low was not in the 20s. Low at Bush IAH airport this morning was a balmy 32. Cooler on Monday. Then a slight warmup Tuesday before another cold front arrives Wednesday into Thursday. Look for some showers on Wednesday. But, it does not look like there will be an ice storm.

Let's do snack or merienda, pronounced mare-ee-EHN-dah. What is your favorite Super Bowl merienda? I love guacomole!

Friday's ice storm in Houston just shows that it doesn't take much ice to make a big mess. Most precipitation amounts in the area were less than 1/10 of an inch. Snow did not materialize around Houston...just too warm aloft. But as we saw, it was plenty cold at the surface to freeze the rain on contact with the ground. Hope you enjoy the photos at right.

My poll on whether you think the economy is rebounding is closed. 50% of you said they think it is. 25% said they don't think it is. And 25% said they are not sure. Only one answer was allowed. Thanks to all who participated.

My new poll is about the recent winter storms that hit much of the nation. Did you enjoy getting a day off from work or school. Or did you get a day off? I realize that many of you may have had several days off. So, please excuse the fact that I said day off instead of day(s) off. Only one answer is allowed. Thanks in advance for particpating.

Hope you enjoyed the Super Bowl. Have a great week everyone!
