According to the National Weather Service, a cold front has moved into the area that will cause temperatures to get below 30 overnight on Tuesday.
What you should do:
This is the first potentially freezing weather we have seen this season. Take time to prepare your vehicle and home NOW for the winter weather season.
At home, remember to protect the "Four P's": People, pets, pipes, and plants.
Keep warm and stay inside, if possible. Have extra blankets on hand.
If you need to go out, dress in layers and wear hats, gloves and a coat.
Check on family and neighbors, especially those who may need extra help.
If your home becomes too cold, or you lose power, consider going to a library or mall to warm up.
Observe heater safety
- Never place a space heater on top of furniture or near water.
- Keep heat sources at least 3 feet away from furniture and drapes.
- Never leave children unattended near a space heater.
- Protect yourself from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning by installing a battery-operated CO detector.
- Never use generators, grills, camp stoves, or similar devices indoors.
Bring pets inside and move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas.
Have food, water and a warm place for animals to rest.
Disconnect outdoor hoses, drain and store in a protected area.
Wrap exposed faucets and pipes, especially those outside the house or in unheated crawl spaces, attics, garages and other areas.
Bring potted plants inside or store in the garage to provide extra warmth and protection from wind.
For cold-sensitive outdoor plants, put down extra mulch and consider covering with a sheet or tarp to shield the plants.
In your vehicle, you should always have an emergency car kit.
Be sure you also have a flashlight, extra batteries and blankets.
Check the tire pressure in your car before driving.
Have a full tank of gas.
If your car breaks down, call Tow and Go or the Motorist Assistance Program (MAP) for help

Not just possible, it will last 8 hours! weather.com/weather/ hourbyhour/l/fe1c992 038c172cabea99ec9269 530069a44eea2c0
I just spent more than two hours moving/covering up all my tropical plants. Otherwise, 8 hours will kill them all.

Supposedly got to 25 in the Woodlands around 4-5am. I let the indoor faucets drip, and cabinet doors open to warm the pipes from indoor heat, and covered and bagged outdoor spigots. I think we might've just survived it... The worst is behind us. It's 30 now.
