Houston Weather, The blizzard of 2011 is primarily history, with heavy snowfalls in the north is coming to an end as the storm moves offshore. But efforts continue raking in a wide band of states of New Mexico, Maine, who received large doses of ice or snow this week. The roads are still slippery, schools are closed, and snowplows are working around the clock, some homes still lack power and airlines play catch-up, including Chicago.

Storm warnings are in place to winter for parts of Texas, with hard-gel and the opinions of wind chill throughout the Gulf coast and extending into southern Mississippi and Alabama, according to the National Weather Service. Houston is expected to receive freezing rain, sleet and snow is Thursday afternoon and night.

Continental U.S. Holdings Inc. unit of Continental Airlines canceled over 1,000 flights Thursday, focusing on those in and out of George Bush Intercontinental Airport / Houston, its largest hub, the company said. Continental said its passengers could see they travel to and through Houston without financial penalty for a limited period. Continental expects to close its flight near Houston on Thursday night through Friday afternoon, a spokesman.

Southwest Airlines Co. said it was beginning to cut flights to Corpus Christi and Harlingen, Texas on Thursday afternoon would be prepared to stop flights to and from the Airport William P. Houston Hobby.

The flights were near normal in Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport Thursday, which had suffered a brief closure, icing and high winds earlier this week, according to, a flight site web tracking.

Dawn Thursday with 1,000 cancellations at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation. Freezing temperatures are not helping. The high in Chicago on Thursday is estimated at 9 degrees.

Continental U.S. United Airlines unit, the largest operator at O’Hare, canceled more than 500 flights Thursday. A spokesman said united was slow rise of its flights at O’Hare, but do not expect to return too normal until Friday.

The National Weather Service Houston / Galveston has issued a winter storm warning for snow … sleet and freezing rain … which is in effect from noon today at noon CST Friday.

Housing: Provide adequate shelter for your pet, they live inside or outside. Indoor pets should have a bed / crate placed in a safe and friendly which is away from drafts. Outdoor animals must have a well-insulated house that is waterproof and wind resistant and high soil to wind and moisture cannot penetrate. Install a door flap to protect against drafts and gusts of wind. Extra blankets and straw will also help increase the warmth of your pet. Room heaters and floor must be kept away from your pet because they are the obvious fire hazard and can cause severe personal injury.

The winter storm of internal power in recent days has left the building. In its wake, there were reports of more than two feet of snow in IA and WI. Around a foot in OK and MO, and the same goes for New England. Chicago missed a snow record of all time set in 1967 by less than 3 inches! Midway got 20.9.

What about today? The cold Arctic air is always around the eastern two thirds of the country. Wind chill warnings and advisories down to TX and WI MT. I’ll have those numbers.

As the arctic air is in place, a new round of energy moves towards the Gulf Coast of the Four Corners region. This will produce snow, sleet and freezing rain from south Texas to Mississippi. Houston will probably be about 2-4 inches of snow mixed with sleet, and which will last in LA and MS. Unreal, right? I’ll show you later in the evolution of this new storm, “Texas-Tail Kicker ‘, or’ Louisiana Lambaster” or whatever. You can come with!

There is a freeze warning of more rain to parts of LA right now, but should be completed later this morning as temperatures rise above freezing.

Dallas weather is interesting. Journey to the Super Bowl, light snow comes this afternoon, could get 1 inch. The Sunday Times in North TX to 50, so getting around will not be as harsh. Rafer hope will be more of a peach in his face by then, erasing Mr. Snow Miser look he has now covering the big game

Houston Weather, The National Weather Service issued a Freeze Watch hard to the Houston area early Tuesday night to Wednesday morning, when interim expected to fall below 25 degrees. Time above can not get out of the 30s on Wednesday and Thursday, and lows will be in the 20s through Saturday.

But the chance for snow will not slide in the forecast until late Thursday. Gomez said that the Arctic air would always be in the area when moving storm level in Thursday night to Friday morning – a formula that could produce snow.

Specifically, there will be a 20 percent chance for snow flurries Thursday night, more than a 40 percent chance on Friday morning.

Even if the snowfalls, well, Gomez said a significant accumulation is unlikely.

“It is an assessment on a daily basis. There is a possibility that we could see measurable snow, but probably not, “he said.” We see only a few days a year where we have opportunities, but it is one of between them. ”

Gomez said the frigid weather should warm up a bit as the weekend winds down, with highs in the 50s and 60s on Saturday and Sunday.

Seeing the snow falling in the Bayou City is a rare event, but there’s a chance it could happen this week.

11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez said an explosion would blow the Arctic in the city on Tuesday, bringing with it some rain and a significant drop in temperatures.

How serious? We’re talking about a dip of 30 degrees in a few hours. Gomez said that we’ll start the day Tuesday in the 60s, but mercury accumulates in mid-to upper 30s in the evening.

“This will be a drastic change really,” said Gomez.

A strong cold front will tear the metro Houston Tuesday morning, and the rapid shift from warm / cold wet / dry could trigger strong to severe thunderstorms across eastern Texas. This system will be something of a monster with many heads, with a snowstorm across parts of the Great Plains and Midwest, an ice storm in the Ozark Plateau and Northern Corn Belt, and an outbreak of severe weather violent in some parts of the Old South (including the Bayou City). Given the regular discharge of energy and advance to the Arctic air from Texas, all chance of rain and thunder should be longer on site by noon.

Then, one may wonder about “how cold it is,” and the infamous “a chance for snow? On the first query, the presence of some clouds and continuous gusts of wind can save us from making a really cool episode record. I’m mostly sticking with the beaches of the average of 20 years nearly 30 for the next three nights, although north of Texas 105 could fall below that range. A low level in the Intermountain Region will move slowly toward the Texas and northern Mexico by Thursday, increasing cloud cover and perhaps the propagation of light snow or sleet in western margin of the Metro Houston by Thursday evening.

Tuesday: Showers and thunderstorms in mid-morning. Some storms may be severe. Then the variable cloudiness, windy and cold strongly. High temperatures from 66 to 70 Trinity Bay City in the early morning, falling in the 40 and 30 by the end of the day.
