Snow? Houston? Could Be…But, Maybe Not

The outlook for snow on Friday is still in the forecast…With the following caveat.

To get snow in our typically tropical clime the timing must be just right, with cold air arriving at the same time as atmospheric moisture. It seems plausible this will happen Friday afternoon.

The National Weather Service says much of the area could get from a trace to an inch of snow.

But Houston only sees snow, on average, about every four years. And never this early in the season: Friday's, if it comes, would be the earliest snowfall ever in Houston, beating the record tied last year by six days. So forecasters like Fred Schmude, of ImpactWeather, are wary.

But the weather today is trying to be nice, if windy. It’s still mostly cloudy with the sun breaking through regularly. After days of overcast and rainy weather…Started warmed ended cold. It’s now made it into the 5o’s and I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy a bit of sun.

From my walk last week before the rain…The field next door.
