An Arctic cold front barreling south through the Plains today will likely bring another round of wintry weather to Texas.

The best chances for freezing rain, sleet or snow will be to the north of the Galveston-Harris County line. Freezing rain, some sleet and even a few snowflakes cannot be ruled out in our area, however

The cold front is expected to move through Southeast Texas on Monday night into early Tuesday. Rain will accompany the front as it moves through the area with temperatures dropping steadily through the day Tuesday.

Precipitation could linger near the coast through Tuesday night and even early Wednesday, resulting in icy conditions even at the beaches, though with the best chances for freezing temperatures and icing focusing on inland areas of the county.

And if that isn’t enough, a surface trough and coastal low expected to develop in the Gulf by Thursday, may keep cloudy, wet, chilly weather around through the end of the week.

:Latest analysis would put the greatest chance for light freezing rain or sleet for late Tuesday into very early Wednesday before clearing skies set in. Low temperatures by Wednesday morning will be near 30 degrees at the coast with the 20's over inland areas of the County.

This reminds me of the winters around here during the 60's and 70's. Isn't this number three for wintry weather for the winter of '17-'18?

It seems climate change is effectively pushing the high temps up, and the low temps down, while the average is sliding up slightly. We just have to evolve a wider "comfort zone."

Was it 'climate change' that froze the Artic ocean after 300 years of being ice free every summer? So much of Greenland was ice free it was a major farming area of Europe for centuries. Melting today is uncovering farms and ranches which were burried by the next round of 'Climate Change'.

Gary, that's what climate change is. The climate is different now, hence, it changed! It was different before, also, and it changed! Change is a difference over time. It happens.
