HOUSTON (CW39) – On Monday morning, Houstonians woke up to the coolest temperatures we’ve seen here since February of this year. The temperatures were in the low to mid 40s range with temperatures around the 30s. In the night from Monday to Tuesday morning, however, temperatures are expected to drop ten or more degrees.

Much of Harris County will be under a frost warning from midnight Monday through 8:00 a.m. Tuesday. In some areas, temperatures are expected to drop down to 28 degrees.

If you live in the city of Houston, it may seem short for now when it drops below freezing. However, in areas further north and just outside Houston, toward Conroe, Liberty, and even Wharton, freezing temperatures can persist for a few hours overnight.

So before you go to bed tonight, it’s a good idea to make sure you are prepared.

Here are the 4Ps of winter safety:

Protecting people – check on friends and neighbors, especially children and the elderly, and make sure they have adequate warmth

Pet Protection – Bring your four-legged friends into the house whenever possible … Pets that need to stay outside should have an enclosed shelter with a leeward entrance

Crop Protection – Containerized plants should be brought indoors and outdoor plants watered before it freezes to isolate the soil and plants and cover them if possible

Finally, protect your pipes – drain water from faucets, especially those facing outside walls, and open up your closets
