HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Not only is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in Houston and surrounding areas. On Tuesday, residents in Houston and outlying areas woke up to a cold morning coupled with temperatures in many areas that met the freezing mark.
Temperatures dipped well below freezing in parts of southeast Texas early Tuesday. A freeze warning was also issued until 9 a.m. Weather forecasters stated that many areas saw temperatures fall well into the 20s overnight.
As of Tuesday at 5 a.m., Conroe reported 29 degrees while Katy reported 28 degrees. In Sugar Land, the temperature was 31 degrees during the 5 a.m. hour and in Houston, temperatures were a bit warmer with 34 degrees reported. As a result of Tuesday morning’s lows, the temperatures were the coldest since January 14, when the morning low fell to 31.
The high for Tuesday in Houston is expected to reach 54 degrees. But when the sun goes down, so will the temperatures. Wednesday’s weather outlook will bring temperature lows of 32 degrees and a high of 57 degrees.
For those who do not like wintry weather, there is a warm-up in the near future. The high on Saturday is expected to be 72 degrees.
