HOUSTON, Texas — By Thursday morning, Houston weather is expected to fall into the upper twenties. Northern Texas cities may dip into the teens.
In preparation, remember to take care of people, pets, plants and pipes! Also consider making donations to Star of Hope. They always need extra blankets and jackets this time of year.
Lee Morgan with Star of Hope says, “Star of Hope is on a cold weather alert which means we will turn no one away.”
It’s going to be cold and wet this weekend, too.
Here are some additional tips for the cold weather:
- Do not use stovetop burners or ovens to heat a room since they are not designed for this use.
- Crack windows slightly if using unvented space heaters.
- Seal leaks around doors, windows and other openings such as pipes or ducts, with caulk or weather-stripping. The most common places where air escapes in homes are floors, walls, ceilings, ducts, fireplaces, plumbing penetrations, doors, windows, fans, vents, and electrical outlets.
- If it has been a while, consider adding more insulation in your attic.
