Cooling off overnight, even stronger cold front this weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Monday's cold front will cool us off for a day, then it's back into the 80s ahead of a strong cold front this weekend.

Overnight temperatures are expected to be chilly with lows in the low 50s. We will start off Tuesday with plentiful clouds, but we should see those clouds break up in the afternoon. Isolated showers are possible as a disturbance rolls through in the morning, but most of us will stay dry. Once sunshine breaks through the clouds, temperatures will warm into the mid 60s.

How long will these cooler temps stick around?
For a whole day. We quickly warm up with the passage of a warm front on Wednesday. That will push high temperatures back into the 70s, then we will once again be challenging record highs in the 80s Thursday and Friday.

Is there any freezing weather in sight?
Not yet! We are expecting a stronger cold front to move in Saturday morning, and we expect it to drop temperatures into the upper 30s. Assuming this forecast verifies, it will be the second latest on record Bush Airport has first dipped into the 30s. On average, Houston gets its first morning in the 30s in mid-November and its first freeze during the first week of December.
