Water: Cold, wet, and windy New Year’s Eve in Houston, snow possible in parts of Texas
When does the next storm reach Houston?
Our final hurricane system of 2020 arrives on Wednesday night with thunderstorms and severe cold.
When will it rain and how much will we get?
Rain is possible with thunderstorms and thunderstorms on Wednesday and Wednesday but most likely in the evening and night hours. As this weather system seems to be slowing down, a cold rain may occur at sunrise on Thursday. Current expectations are mostly 1-2 “rain with isolated spots getting 3-5”. Flooding is possible on the road on Wednesday night.
Will we get any severe weather?
Severe weather is possible but still unlikely. If any severe weather comes, strong winds will be our biggest danger.
What is the weather forecast for New Year’s Eve in Houston?
New Year’s Eve will bring us cold, windy and wet weather, but we expect the weather to clear before the rain before midnight. The temperature will probably remain in the 40s throughout the day. At midnight on New Year’s Day, temperatures will likely be in the upper 30s and lower 40s with a wind chill factor.
Wait, you said “cold.” Will there be any snow ?!
Snow seems unlikely for Houston, but there is a chance that snowflakes will fly somewhere in Texas on New Year’s Eve. At this time it is most likely along the I-35 corridor and to the west. Where it sniffs depends on the exact track of the storm system across the state, so we can’t rule it out for southeast Texas as a whole yet.
So you’re saying there’s a chance of snow in Houston?
Yes, there is very little non-zero chance, but your expectations have not been met yet.
