Remnants of Hurricane Rick, Pacific cold front to bring weather changes

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Get ready for a lot of weather changes over the next few days.

First up is the remnants of Hurricane Rick. After a foggy start to the day, rain chances will increase as we head toward first pitch in Game 1 of the World Series. Widely scattered rain showers with isolated rumbles of thunder are possible from the late afternoon through the evening. Temperatures will start in the mid 70s and warm into the mid 80s.

Rain chances spike Wednesday as a strong Pacific cold front blasts in from the west.

What can we expect with the cold front?
The cold front arrives Wednesday morning with a line of strong thunderstorms. Some storms could even produce severe wind gusts up to 60 mph, and we can't rule out isolated hail or an isolated tornado. Cooler, drier, and breezy air is expected to move in behind the front Wednesday evening.



How windy will it get behind the front?
Winds will actually peak on Thursday with northwest winds at 20-30 mph and gusts over 40 mph.

How does the weekend look?
It looks fantastic! We'll enjoy lots of sunshine with morning lows in the 50s and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

What can we expect for Trick-or-Treat time on Halloween?
It should be nearly perfect with temperatures in the 70s, light winds, and low humidity under a mostly clear sky.

Is there anything of concern in the tropics?

Texas is normally done with hurricane season by mid October. Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog explains whyhere. We will continue to monitor the Pacific Ocean for any storms that could curve across Mexico and bring rain to Texas.
