You may have to set an alarm to get up early if you want to catch a glimpse of snowflakes

Yes, it really could snow in southeast Texas tonight.

But it's not guaranteed.

In fact, Meteorologist Travis Herzog says about the only thing guaranteed is there will be surprises tonight as all the ingredients for snow attempt to come together.

Snow in the forecast? Different types of precipitation possible across area.

Travis says there will be a brief window where the frigid temperatures will overlap with moist air to allow snow to fall to the ground. This is most likely to occur early Friday morning south of I-10 between Houston and the upper Texas coastline.

Because the ground is still above freezing, the snow will likely start melting upon contact, so you might have to set the alarm clock early to have a chance to see some of the white stuff, if it even forms at all. The roads will most likely stay ice-free, so travel impacts should be limited. Sorry, kids, it doesn't look like we'll get a snow day this time.

Watch the video to see specifically when and where you have the best chance of enjoying a rare southeast Texas snow.
