You know how we’re quick to say we hate cold weather in Houston? Well, it’s about to get a little more difficult. Local meteorologists are reporting that there’s a chance — a chance, they say of SNOW hitting the Houston area today.

According to the good people at ABC13Houston, not only are we set for our first freeze tonight but we’re also in range for a brief chance of snow flurries. Since current temperatures are above the freezing level, anything that will hit the ground is going to melt, so no worries about icy road conditions messing up your AM commute.

A Freeze Watch has been issued for all of southeast Texas for Wednesday morning and if it does indeed freeze, it’ll be three weeks ahead of schedule and the earliest fall freeze on record since 1999. In the event of a freeze like this, make sure you keep pets indoors as well as plants covered but there won’t be any need to protect your pipes — at least not this early in the season.
