HOUSTON (KTRK) --Today's average high is down to 79 degrees, but the weather refuses to cooperate. Meteorologist Casey Curry says a warming trend is underway that will challenge records by the weekend.
Today will be pleasantly warm with nearly perfect humidity, but it'll start to feel more humid later this week as southeasterly winds return. Temps could peak near 90 by the end of the week. Meanwhile low temps will be in the 60s, well above our average lows in the upper 50s.
Travis says this October will likely go down as one of the top 10 warmest and driest in Houston's recorded history. A chance for needed rain returns early next work week as even deeper moisture blows in from the Gulf. No significant cold fronts are expected over the next 7 days.
