Residents in Washington DC will avoid the snowfield – instead, they’ll be hit by an arctic air current this weekend.

Areas in the south Texas can also see light snowfall starting Friday, with temperatures reaching 30 degrees below normal, the NWS forecast said.

South Texas can see a combination of cold air and snow.

The coming storm comes nearly a year after a power grid failure that devastated the Lone Star State and saw hundreds of people die in just a split second of frost.

The arctic blast comes just days after Snowstorm Izzy dropped a layer or more of snow in several northern states last weekend after crashing the Southeast.
