HOUSTON (KTRK) --Temperature are tumbling all across Texas as a strong cold front sweeps thru the state, and a freeze warning goes into effect tonight for many communities north of I-10. Chief Meteorologist Tim Heller calls this a "light freeze."
It won't be cold enough to cause pipes to burst, but tender tropical plants should be protected. Pets will also appreciate a warm shelter tonight. Factor in the wind, and it will feel like it's in the 20s around sunrise!
The cold air only hangs around a couple days. Another light freeze is possible north of Houston Saturday morning. Temps slowly climb into the 50s under a partly cloudy sky as a warm front pushes in from the Gulf. That warm front will push the high back to the low 70s on Sunday. Scattered showers are possible with the return of warmer air.
