Snow Flurries Fell in Parts of Far Southeast Louisiana This Afternoon; Potential for More Winter Precipitation Tonight

Some moisture from a disturbance currently working its way into Texas and towards the North-Central Gulf Coast manage to cause a few snow flurries in some coastal areas of far Southeast Louisiana (around Morgan City and Houma) this afternoon.

North-Central Gulf Coast: Flurries will continue to be possible across coastal sections of Southeast Louisiana overnight.

Some flurries will also become possible across the remainder of the Louisiana Gulf Coast, and coastal sections of Mississippi, Alabama, and the Western Florida Panhandle later tonight through early tomorrow morning as the aforementioned disturbances pushes east.

Flurries will also be possible across parts of South Louisiana and Mississippi, and Central and South Alabama.

If additional flurries do fall tonight, there will not be any accumulation.

Southeast Texas: The disturbance is also going to bring a brief mix of sleet and some snow to Southeast Texas (including the Houston/Galveston area and Beaumont) late this evening through roughly midnight.

Forecast from National Weather Service Houston/Galveston for tonight.

Little to no accumulation is expected.

However, taking into account the fact that temperatures are going to drop below freezing, there is an outside chance of some isolated light snow (think a dusting)/sleet accumulations; but only if any areas of heavier precipitation end up developing.


A few key points: 

  • The chance of additional flurries tonight is low along the North-Central Gulf Coast is low; there will be no accumulation.
  • A brief mix of sleet and some snow is likely across portions of Southeast Texas later this evening through about midnight; little to no accumulation is expected. But there is an outside chance of some isolated light snow/sleet accumulations.
  • There will be no impacts for the North-Central Gulf Coast.
  • Some minor impacts to travel will be possible across Southeast Texas where/if any sleet or snow accumulates.
  • Not everyone will see winter precipitation (this applies to both the North-Central Gulf Coast and Southeast Texas.
