THIS IS THE REAL DEAL FOLKS!

The University’s Katy and Sugar Land campuses will have virtual classes continue as scheduled and in-person classes transition online during the regularly scheduled times.
Temperatures in Houston are forecast to be as low as 11 degrees on Monday, when the storm is expected to bring a wintry mix of snow and ice.
Hidalgo urged residents to stay home Sunday night through Tuesday as road closures and power outages are expected.
