It's Day 3 of the brutal Winter Storms hitting the Greater Houston area.

The arctic blast is nearing its end, but we're not out of the woods weather-wise yet. Temperatures have been ticking up today, but will fall to freezing levels again tonight in some areas.

On top of that, the massive power outage continues. And today, a boil water notice was announced for the City of Houston and much of Harris County. You should assume you are under a boil water notice unless you’ve heard differently from your local authorities.

We want to help you get through another day.
