1:00 AM Winter Weather Update; Driving Conditions & Snow Forecast
Spring, Texas – December 8th, 2017: We are going to get straight to the point during this 1 AM Winter Weather Update. Everything will be broken down into simple easy to comprehend bullet points.
- Feels like low 20’s outside right now in Spring. And brrrrrr is it cold.
- Freeze Warning in effect until 7:00 AM Friday morning for Montgomery County. Harris County not included as temps are not forecast to fall below freezing.
- Snow WILL stick in grassy areas, bushes, and roofs even in areas that are NOT in the freeze warning.
- Some portions of Northern Montgomery County could see accumulation between 1-3 inches of snow.
- Snow & the wintery mix will continue to fall in both Harris & Montgomery County until approx 5 AM.
- Roadways outside of Freeze warning should be ok. It is always smart in cases like this to use extreme caution as ice can form on elevated roadways, bridges, and overpasses. My real concern goes to the folks traveling from northern Montgomery County as temps will fall below freezing for several hours. I expect some roadways, bridges, and overpasses to ice up. I encourage EVERYONE to exercise extreme caution and check with your local media BEFORE getting out on the roadways.
- No school closures at this time. Check back to Spring Happenings at 5:00 AM for additional updates.
- Slight chance for additional wintery mix Friday mid-morning.
- Temperatures are forecast to fall below freezing on Friday night
Thank you, Deborah and Raymond, for sending your videos and pictures in.
Folks, this is Houston and the weather can change without much notice. It was 80 degrees just a few days ago and now there is snow on the ground across South Texas. Please exercise extreme caution and check local media BEFORE getting out on the roadway even if you are not in an area that saw freezing temperatures.
Stay warm and most importantly stay safe!

Preparations/ What you need to do:
- Make sure your family stays safe during winter weather by preparing with these tips:
- Monitor local forecasts throughout the day, especially before you start driving. Listen to local officials for road closures and safety information.
- Winter driving can be hazardous. One simple way to keep yourself and everyone on the road safe is to slow down. Remember, “Ice and snow, take it slow”.
- Remember the three feet rule. If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away – things such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs.
- Remember the 4 P’s. People, pets, pipes, plants.
- Keep warm, stay inside if possible. If you need to go out, dress in layers and wear hats, gloves and an appropriate coat
- Keep your pets warm. If it is too cold for you outside, it is too cold for them. Make sure they have a warm, dry place to rest with plenty of food and water.
- Protect your pipes. Run water, even at a trickle, to help prevent your pipes from freezing.
- Protect your plants. Bring potted plants inside or store in garage near interior wall to provide extra warmth and protection from wind.
