Tracking rain, a few snowflakes and much colder air Friday into Saturday

Tracking rain, a few snowflakes and much colder air Friday into Saturday

Cold temperatures and rainy weather will stick around the Houston area over the next couple days, making way for a possible appearance of sleet or snow, according to the National Weather Service. For communities on the North Shore, snow flurries are possible Friday, the National Weather Service predicts.

Light snow and rain has been spotted in and around the city of Lubbock but we have no accumulation of snow to report. Areas of the central and western parts of North and SC may see a mix of rain and snow or wet snow and sleet at times through the day Friday. Along that front, an area of low pressure continues to develop in the northwestern Gulf, and extensive precipitation extended from Texas into portions of Louisiana, southern Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and the eastern Carolinas early Thursday. Still, any accumulations would likely have a hard time sticking to roadways, and be confined mainly to grassy and elevated surfaces. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain. But, most likely is "trace amounts to 2", Bernard said in a post on his Facebook page. That should minimize the accumulation potential.

Thursday will be another cold day as temperatures struggle to reach 40 degrees under cloudy sky in Lubbock and northerly wind speeds become gusty by afternoon. With temperatures well above freezing, the sleet will quickly melt on impact.




Extended: We're watching an approaching cold front that will turn our rain into snow come Friday morning. Well, it's a snow forecast in Alabama - so, there WILL be surprises and things that we don't expect. This means most of the Upstate will see generally a cold rain mixed occasionally with melting snowflakes.

After seeing highs near 70 on Tuesday, Wednesday afternoon temperatures had dropped into the 40s for most.
