People: check on the elderly and those who may not have access to heat

Pipes: properly insulate exposed pipes to prevent cracking

There is a potential for light freezing rain and sleet. Icy conditions may develop – especially along elevated roads, bridges and overpasses – Thursday afternoon into Thursday night.
The coldest nights for Missouri City are expected to be Thursday night into Friday morning, and Friday night into Saturday morning, with temperatures in the 20s. The wind chill will make those overnight temperatures seem colder.
