Cold Front Poised to Deliver Major Temperature Drop to Houston

HOUSTON – A strong cold front will sweep through Houston Tuesday morning, bringing an end to our stretch of unseasonably warm weather.

Cold, arctic air is bottled up in the Rocky Mountains, where temperatures are in the 20s and 30s. It will march into the Texas Panhandle Monday afternoon.

The cold front, which signifies the leading edge of the cold air, will make it to Houston by mid-morning Tuesday.

Ahead of the front, during the morning commute, temperatures will be in the 70s. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely during this time, too.

Once the front comes through, temperatures will quickly drop into the low 60s and upper 50s for the remainder of the day.

Cloudy skies, a stiff north wind and scattered showers Tuesday afternoon will definitely bring a fall feel back to the area.

Wednesday promises to be even colder.

Morning temperatures on Wednesday will be in the low 40s, with the mercury struggling to break 50 by the end of the day. Clouds, the persistent north wind and a mix of drizzle, sprinkles and light rain will make Wednesday a very raw day — a stark contrast to Monday’s balmy feel.

Clouds will linger into Thursday, with sunshine breaking out in full force on Friday.

Afternoon temperatures will moderate by the end of the week, back into the mid-60s, making for a very seasonably cool weekend.
