“This is Pittsburgh weather,” said Tricia Caswell, shopping at a Target in Frisco. She arrived in town Thursday to Sunday of Super Bowl XLV at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington (where, yes, the roof is closed).

“We were hoping for a little vacation from the cold,” she said.

Not before Saturday at the earliest, Tricia. The temperature should not rise above freezing until then, when it could reach 40 years.

The latest forecast kickoff is about 40, with moderate winds. All or most of the snow and ice-clogged roads and highways must be melted by then.

But the way this week opted for the Super Bowl partygoers and planners, would be terribly surprised if a tidal wave hit us instead.

Snow this morning – far worse than forecasters had predicted that Thursday night – came after three days of cold, ice storms, treacherous roads, yet cuts, plant closings and mass transit failures common. The snowfall started in most areas around midnight, moving from south to north across the region. The totals vary greatly but are generally farther east.

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.

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.

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.

Tuesday Night: Timed Release, windy and much colder. Lows 26 to 30 Livingston Wharton

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, windy and cold. Highs 44 to 48 Fostoria Brazoria

Wednesday Night: Cloudy, windy and cold. Lowest level in 25 to 29 Cut And Shoot West Columbia

Thursday: Sunny, windy and cold. Highs 43 to 47 Security Freeport

Friday: cloudy and cold wicker light snow or sleet possible in the morning. No accumulation expected. Top 48, lowest in 30

Saturday: Partly sunny, breezy and mild. High 58 Low 34

Sunday: Sunny, breezy and mild. Showers and thunderstorms developing day late. High 66 Low 51
