Snow in Houston Texas Earliest Snowfall in City’s History; Closes Schools

Snow in Houston 2009

Houston this morning broke a record with the earliest snowfall ever recorded in the city’s history.

Weather forecasters are still hedging their bets on the amount, but most say that the most likely scenario is 1 to 2 inches of widespread snowfall through the day. Some areas are predicted to have 6 inches of snowfall too. Citizens in Houston already have sent sand trucks and chemical trucks ready for the icy roads to make way for the 12-hour freeze period has been predicted after sundown today.

Some have added theories that the earliest snowfall could’ve been an effect of global warming or climate change.  Eric Berger of the Houston Chronicle however throws the global warming theory in to the trash can as he said that the snowfall in Houston doesn’t have any connection with the global phenomenon. Houston weather will be intensely monitored during the next hours by  channel 11 houston, channel 26 houston, channel 13, KXAN weather, KVUE weather and Fox News Austin.
