Grab your jacket this morning, but get ready to ditch it this afternoon. Meteorologist Travis Herzog says after bottoming out in the 40s, temperatures will warm into the mid 70s this afternoon.

Despite how beautiful the weather will look and feel today, we do have two air quality issues we're monitoring. Travis says the oak pollen count will remain extremely high, and he's also monitoring smoke from a wildfire in Liberty County and marsh fires in Chambers and Jefferson Counties. An easterly breeze will direct the smoke plumes toward the I-45 corridor.

A wind shift will blow humidity back into southeast Texas by the weekend but the next chance of rain isn't until the middle of next week.
