Texans Brace for Second Winter Storm

With power out across much of the state and roads iced over on the heels of the worst winter storm in decades, Texas is about to be hit with hostile weather again.

Meteorologists are forecasting a second storm which will hit Texas Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, pouring down sleet and freezing rain on top of the layers of snow and ice still covering the ground from the previous storm.

Roadways will continue to be highly dangerous. Ice is expected to accumulate on power lines and trees, which could cause even more power outages as electric transmission infrastructure is damaged.

Warming centers continue to be open at multiple locations across Montgomery County:

1. Over Under Church, 600 S. Frazier St (Conroe)
2. Church Project, 602 Pruitt Rd (The Woodlands)
3. Lone Star Convention Center, 9055 Airport Rd (Conroe)
4. Madeley Ranch Elementary, 3500 Madeley Ranch Rd (Montgomery)

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing throughout the week. Widespread power outages will also likely continue.
