Odds are you're waking up to some fog this morning, with the most dense stuff west and southwest of the Houston metro. It's one of those days to get an early start, leave some extra room on the roads, and be sure to keep those headlights on low beam only!

Rain has not been particularly forthcoming lately around the area. When will we see our next shot? For nearly all of us, rain chances don't really start to increase until a front approaches on Sunday.

It is almost December, a good time for a countdown, isn’t it?

If you are out and about tonight, please be careful. There's a good chance that fog will develop overnight and could linger into early tomorrow morning. Be on the lookout for sudden changes in visibility and #SlowDown  #houwx  #bcswx  #glswx  #txwx

Another soupy night, another dense fog advisory in Southeast Texas! In this animation, you can see how we use satellite data to estimate how likely there is thick fog in place. It's probably no surprise to see the high likelihood of thick fog blossom through the night!

It's Saturday morning, and again we see dense fog around the area. If you've got somewhere to be, leave a little early so you can slow down for conditions. And while low beam headlights are good in the fog - high beams, not so much. Keep those headlights on the low setting.

Big news, there's a cold front on the way later today! -So it's gonna be cold? Uh, cooler...ish? How does seasonable sound? -So it's gonna rain? Well, in College Station a little bit. Can we interest you in Tuesday night...or next weekend? Okay, we'll see ourselves out now.

Cooler and drier weather on tap for tonight with the passage of a cold front. Isolated showers will be possible over parts of the area ahead of and with the passage of the front itself. #houwx  #bcswx  #glswx  #txwx  #ColdFronts

One front down this week, (well, almost - it's almost to the coast) two more fronts to go! With the active pattern, we'll continue to see back and forth weather. Today: about 10 degrees cooler and noticeably drier!
