Storm report from Tecumseh, OK measured 1.5 inches of Sleet, I've not measured the Sleet, but it's likely also 1.5 inches.

My pool is steaming with 37? degrees outside. So done with this crappy weather. Thank God March and the meteorological spring starts next week.

Edited: my weather station is down but I’m guessing 37 based on surrounding observations.

For anyone interested here is a GIF (click it to make it work) for the 2m temp trend over the last couple of days. Pretty incredible how much further south the front pushed. Based on forecasts two days ago most of the Houston area should be in the mid 60s/ low 70s right now instead of the 30s.

Im a little more concerned with round #2 of frozen precip tomorrow, looks like their will be more moisture to work with leading to some higher ice accumulations, could be a very close call for me here

Sent from Jeff at about 7:30:
Winter Weather Advisory now in effect for tonight into early Thursday for areas NW of Houston.

This advisory is roughly along and NW of a lien from Columbus to Brenham to Huntsville.

Shallow, yet very cold arctic air mass continues to spill into the region this evening with surface freezing line extending from west of Huntsville to Brenham to Columbus. Areas of light freezing rain and freezing drizzle continue to develop to the northwest of this line and this will continue through much of the night. While surface ground temperatures are in the mid 30’s, elevated structures such as bridges, overpasses, rooftops, trees, power lines have cooled to or below freezing and this is allowing light icing to develop on these surfaces.

Expect additional precipitation tonight to generally average less than .10 of an inch and more likely around .05 of an inch, but with temperatures falling into the upper 20’s in the advisory area, much of what falls will freeze on contact with sub freezing surfaces.

Expect the freezing line to advance some southward tonight, but at this time do not expect any freezing drizzle into the metro Houston area, it is possible portions of Waller, Northern Fort Bend, Montgomery, and extreme NW Harris County could see temperatures cold enough to produce a few icy patches on bridges.

Temperatures will remain cold tomorrow with many areas only reaching the low to mid 40’s on continued thick clouds and drizzle/light rain.

Same areas could again be near or below freezing tomorrow night and with continued chances of drizzle and light rain…some additional icing will be possible in those areas…again this will likely be N and W of the metro Houston area.

Based on the 0Z mesoscale models it looks like most of us along and west of I-45 wont get out of the 30s tomorrow.(And maybe most of Friday also)

Well I’m about to hit the sack. Just wanted to say that I just dropped down to 33° after spending the whole evening at 34°. Definitely knocking on the door now.

Pretty icy at times driving (slowly) from CLL to Waco. Ice covers much of the car on arrival. There will be ice on the road. Wintry mix and potentially slow tonight.Freezing rain in CLL.

26°F Here and 31°F in CLL

If the GFS is to be believed, it looks like this is the last big cold snap (if you want to call it that) as a good solid warm up looks to take shape as we enter March and through the end of its run. Come on with it.

Gross. Back to sweating and a nasty case of swamp a*s. If that’s the case then we better start getting some heavy rains at least.

.AVIATION...

Low stratus deck continues to maintain a hold over all sites. LIFR
conditions persisting this morning for all terminals with the
exception of HOU, where CIGs are sitting at the low end of the IFR
category. Satellite imagery shows very little movement with the
cloud cover, so not expecting conditions to improve to MVFR until
later this evening. Terminals closer to the coast will be slower
to improve. Expect to remain at least MVFR tonight through the
end of the period, with IFR conditions possible overnight and into
FRI AM for SGR/HOU/LBX/GLS. Winds today will continue to be out of
the north with speeds increasing to around 10-15 knots tonight.
GLS could see winds around 20 kts. Have kept VCSH through the TAF
period. Will continue to monitor for the potential for -FZRA at
CLL and UTS, but the probability of this remains low at this time.

We have a baseball game tonight. I'm dreading being out in the wet cold for 3 hours. I'm sure it will be miserable.
