Big warm-up before a midweek cold front

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- It was a gorgeous MLK Day with sunny skies and mild afternoon temperatures.

Tuesday will start off chilly with lows in the mid 40s, but a breezy, southeasterly wind will warm us up into the mid 70s in the afternoon!

Enjoy those warmer temperatures, because big changes come midweek as another strong cold front moves in.

How does the weather look for the week?
The warm air really returns on Tuesday when we make back to the middle 70s. Even that won't last long. After temps make it to the upper 70s Wednesday afternoon, another cold front will pass through and cool us off for the second half of next week.

How strong will this next cold front be?
It looks like this front will be a strong one bringing back temperatures in the 30s for the morning hours and highs in the 40s and 50s!

Will we see any rain this week?
Rain chances return Wednesday ahead of our next cold front. Scattered showers and storms are expected to pop up across parts of SE Texas Wednesday with the best rain chances being near the I-10 corridor and areas south to the coast. Moisture will not be completely wiped out behind the front, so another chance for scattered rain is in the forecast for Thursday.
