Hurricanes bring snow to Houston




The Houston weather blog had an interesting story after our December snowfall. Every time a hurricane has landed in Houston, snow has followed in December. While we’ve occasionally had snow with out a hurricane, we haven’t had a hurricane with out snow.

Snow more than a trace amount in Houston ( 20″ Feb. 1895; .1″ Jan. 1912; .2″ Jan. 1918; .8″ Jan. 1926; 2.5″ Dec. 1929; .8″ Mar. 1932; 3″ Jan. 1940; 2.6″ Jan 1949; 4.4″ Feb. 1960; 2.0″ Jan. 1973; 1.4″ Feb. 1973; 1.4″ (again) Feb. 1973; .4″; Jan. 1978; 1.4″ Feb. 1980; 1.0″ Jan. 1985; .3″ Feb. 1985; 1.7″ Dec. 1989, .1″ Feb. 1994; )
