While wintry precipitation is possible, NWS officials said Wednesday morning there is considerable uncertainty remaining in the forecast.
While precipitation will likely be limited, well need to keep an eye on our roads Friday morning, said KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Chita Johnson.
An arctic air mass is expected to move into the Houston area early Thursday morning, bringing very light rain. Houstons daytime temperatures will drop from the 60s into the 40s. The rain chance continues overnight as temperatures drop below the freezing mark early Friday morning.
Periods of light rain may result in sleet or freezing precipitation in the overnight hours, and the current forecast suggests snow is possible north of Conroe.
Houston-area drivers are advised to use caution, especially on bridges and overpasses late Thursday and early Friday. The NWS says while rainfall will be light, even a small amount can cause icing.
Meteorologists say the forecast will likely change as the arctic approaches, and even a difference of a few degrees can change the precipitation type.
