The Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect from 6 PM this
evening to 3 am CST Saturday.
Morning rains will change to a rain/snow mix by midafternoon
Friday for southeast Texas... and by late afternoon for the
remainder of southern Louisiana. The precipitation is expected to
change over completely to a light-to-moderate snow after sunset...
except for the immediate coast where a rain/snow mix will likely
persist. Accumulations of up to an inch are likely... with
localized amounts up to 2 inches possible. The snow will be ending
from west to east across the region after midnight.
Travelers are urged to use caution Friday afternoon through
Saturday morning. Temperatures are expected to fall below freezing
after midnight... and remain at or below freezing until shortly
after the Saturday sunrise. Thus... any remaining snow or moisture
on roadways may freeze during the overnight time period... creating
patches of poorly-visible black ice.
Motorized travel is discouraged.
