HOUSTON, TX — Schools in the Houston area are not taking any chances and are asking students and staff to stay home on TuesdayThe Houston area is bracing for more winter weather as an Arctic front makes its way toward southeast Texas.

Temperatures are expected to plummet below freezing and into the 20s, and forecasters are predicting a wintery mix of freezing rain, sleet and possibly snow.

Huntsville, Navasota and Sealy ISD were among the first to call off school for Tuesday.

Other school districts in the Houston area that are closed on Tuesday include:

  • Houston ISD
  • Cy-Fair ISD

On Monday, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning from 3 a.m. to midnight Tuesday for Trinity, Madison, Walker, San Jacinto, Polk, Burleson, Brazos, Washington, Grimes, Montgomery, Liberty, Colorado, Austin, Waller and Harris counties.

The Houston area was the recipient of about four inches of snow on Dec. 8, but it wasn't enough to close schools or cause delays.

Although snow accumulation isn't expected, it's the threat of ice and the wintry mix that is predicted to hang around from Tuesday through Thursday.

Forecasters indicated that temperatures will begin dropping significantly early Tuesday, and hang around the area for several days.

The wintry mix that's anticipated will likely began to impact the area late Tuesday into Wednesday, before clearing out early Friday.
