The National Weather Service is predicting a possibility of wintry precipitation tonight through Friday morning across portions of southeast Texas. Cold and breezy conditions along with freezing temperatures are expected in some parts of the area.
Any lingering rain will have the potential to interact with near-freezing temperatures and transition into a mix of freezing rain and sleet. Friday night is expected to be even colder, with a low of 32 degrees in some areas.
Residents are urged to protect the four Ps for winter safety:
- People: check on the elderly and those who may not have access to heat
- Pets: bring pets indoors
- Pipes: properly insulate exposed pipes to prevent cracking
- Plants: cover plants with fabric to help keep them insulated
