Temperatures will not be above freezing until the end of the week.
HOUSTON – The bitter cold is here, and it’s going nowhere soon. The Houston area is unlikely to be above freezing until Friday.
And while a weather event like this is very newsworthy, the biggest story with this front is power. It’s out for about 1.4 million people in the Houston area, and it’s not clear when it’s coming back.
We follow the story of power outages on KHOU 11 News. Here are a few stories that explain what happened and what is going on.

More winter weather on the way to Houston
Houston fell below freezing Sunday night and will not be over it until Friday
Tuesday: We forecast 5 degrees in Houston. It binds a record set in 1930. It will remain below freezing all day. We were to see the sun in the morning until midday. Travel conditions will still be treacherous. We have icy bridges, highways and side roads. Heights will struggle to reach between 20 and 20. Look for rising clouds before our next storm.
Wednesday: The second winter storm moves Wednesday morning with freezing rain and sleet. Driving conditions deteriorate again.
Wednesday evening: We have a 90% chance of freezing rain, mostly north of I-10. Accommodation down to the mid 20s. Driving will again be impossible, especially on bridges and crossings.
Thursday: 30% chance of freezing rain and then clear skies. Heights should reach the top 30s with rising sunshine.
Thursday evening: Brutally cold again with low temperatures around 20 degrees. Black ice will be problematic, making the journey dangerous.
Friday: Sunny. Heights come into the 40s and then it’s up, up and away from here. 70s before the coming weekend.
Call the National Guard
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced Monday that The National Guard was deployed to carry out welfare checks on people and get those who need help to heating centers.
