Dangerously cold with icy patches on bridges & overpasses in Houston



Tonight’s threat – ice on bridges & overpasses:

We have major impacts with our weather today through Wednesday morning. We’ll start to see the wintry mix that has been moving through the area for most of the day will wind down tonight but temps haven’t gotten above freezing all day. This will compound problems tonight as bridges and overpasses that have iced over will stay icy through the night.
