Early Snow in the South

It looks like there’s a small chance of snow tonight, although the weather service is indicating the best chances of accumulation are going to be in northwest Georgia — so probably not affecting the metro Atlanta area. There may be a few flakes here and there towards morning, but it shouldn’t amount to much. On the other hand, I wouldn’t miind having to eat my words.

They are getting snow in Houston — a bunch of it., at least for them. About an inch of snow fell in Houston today, marking the earliest ever recorded snowfall in that southern Texas city. The previous earliest snowfall was set last year on December 10th. This is also the first time it has snowed in Houston two years in a row.

Whether snow falls overnight or not, Saturday night promises to be the coldest night of the season so far. Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid 20s, as high pressure and radiational cooling take over. Temperatures have hovered around the freezing mark several evenings this fall, but this should mark the first hard freeze of what is expected to be a colder than normal winter.
