Freeze Warning Issued For Harris County

The freeze warning is in effect from midnight to 9:00 am Wednesday.


Harris County will see sub-freezing temperatures Tuesday night, prompting the National Weather Service (NWS) to issue a freeze warning for the county.

The freeze warning is in effect from midnight to 9:00 am Wednesday, with temperatures expected to drop to 27-32 degrees.

To prepare for the cold weather, the NWS says people should take care of the "Four Ps”:

People: Keep warm by dressing in layers. Check on any elderly family or neighbors that may need assistance.
Pets: Dogs and cats get cold too. Bring them inside to keep them healthy and safe. Have plenty of food and water for them.
Plants: Cover or bring in delicate plants to keep them from freezing.
Pipes: Cover exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks, and disconnect outdoor hoses.

The NWS also recommends having a flashlight, extra batteries, a portable cell phone charger, warm clothes, blankets and a weather radio on hand in case the power goes out.

Record Set For Earliest Observed Snow

Tuesday morning a trace of snow/sleet was reported at both Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport, breaking the record for earliest observed snow.

The previous record was set November 23, 1979, according to the NWS.

The NWS was also getting reports of sleet and flurries in the College Station area.
