Near record heat Monday... cool front midweek

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- It ended up being a pleasant but warm Sunday with temps topping out in the upper 80s.

Tomorrow will start off with temperatures in the low 70s and some patchy fog which may be dense in some areas. Tomorrow afternoon we should see mostly sunny skies and temperatures near 90! The record for Houston is 91 set back in 1950.

Rain chances return to the forecast Tuesday and spike Wednesday before a cool front moves in. Cooler and drier air filter in behind the front.

When will our next cold front arrive?
We have the next cold front penciled in for Wednesday, October 27th. Cooler, drier, and breezy air is expected to move in behind the front Wednesday evening.



Is there any rain that could cool us off before then?
Tuesday will bring a chance for scattered storms but more widespread rain is expected Wednesday ahead and along on our next cool front. We will also have to watch Wednesday morning for an isolated strong storm or two.

How does Halloween look?
Right now, the forecast looks great. Lows in the upper 50s and highs in the low 80s with mostly sunny skies.

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 be monitoring a developing system in the Pacific that could send moisture into Texas next week and bring us a higher chance of heavy rain.
