We have a cold and damp night ahead

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- It's cold and there are reports of rain and even sleet across the area. Temps will fall to the middle 30s overnight in most locations. So long as we stay above freezing, there won't be any icing problems on any bridges.

A disturbance moving in from the west will keep showers chances around 30% overnight. Icy weather is possible well to our west, but not here.

do I need to worry about icy bridges on my Friday morning commute?
At this time it doesn't look like it. Most of what we get will be spotty, light rain showers. Some sleet may mix in but temps should be far enough above freezing that it won't be a problem on our roads. Our western counties have the best chance of some black ice on an overpass or two.

How is Friday looking?
It'll be cloudy and very cold to start with temps just above freezing. There may a little rain near the coast at daybreak. Skies should clear during the afternoon allowing for some sunshine and cool temps just below 50 degrees.

And how is the weekend looking?
Saturday morning will be very cold with temps in the upper 20s. After that it'll be mostly sunny and cool with highs in the 50s.
