Big weather changes are on the way! We are watching a powerful cold front that is bringing widespread severe weather from the Great Lakes to the Southern Plains today. That cold front moves into our area Thursday afternoon.

Until the front arrives, look for more of the same across southeast Texas: mostly cloudy skies, breezy, mild temps, muggy, with a stray sprinkle possible.

ABC13 Meteorologist says Thursday's cold front will bring us scattered showers and storms, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Behind the front, much colder air settles in. We may see some record low temps, especially Saturday morning.

Here's a look at the record lows and forecast lows for the next few days:

Day | Record Lows with Year | Forecast Lows

  • Friday | 40 (1901) | 46
  • Saturday | 44 (1901) | 41
  • Sunday | 42 (1978) | 48

Otherwise, a gorgeous weekend ahead with lots of sunshine, lighter winds and highs in the 70s.
