It snowed in Houston yesterday and possibly further south. Up here in North Louisiana it didnít get out of the 30ís yesterday and we woke up to unforcasted snow and 31F this morning. Officially the final snowfall on the ground was between 1/4 and 1/2 inch, making this the record earliest measurable snowfall for Monroe, LA (previous record was Nov 24, 1950!). In fact the record earliest recorded snow flurries (can be only a few flakes) was only missed by a couple days (that record is Nov 12). It isnít supposed to go above 38F here today and will hit mid-20ís tonight.
We have been having a crazy cold November here after a crazy cold two weeks in October as well. Keep in mind our average highs for this time of the year are still around 70F. Winter is a full 6 weeks ahead of the normal schedule for the mid-south. Some pictures (less snow for me since I live near a fairly large body of (still warm) bayou water.
