Get ready for a major humidity drop and the coolest mornings in five months!

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Our first fall front is now offshore and the muggy Gulf air is moving out along with it. A persistent north to northeast wind the rest of the week will make for some spectacular mornings in Houston.

Tuesday's temperatures will bottom out in the mid 60s over Houston then warm back up toward 90, so if you do bust out your fall sweater and boots, you might consider having another outfit to change into later in the day.

How cool will it get behind the front, and how long will it stick around?

Low temperatures for Houston will first fall into the 60s on Tuesday morning and there will be a crisp feel to the air as dew points will be down in the 40s. Once the winds settle down later in the week, we'll wake up to sunrise temps in the 50s for Friday and Saturday! Highs will fall into the mid 80s by Wednesday, but it will still be warm in the afternoons. At least the humidity will be low enough to open the windows when the temperatures are cooler during the first half of the day. This pattern of cooler mornings and warm afternoons will stick around all the way through the first few days of October.

What's happening in the tropics?

We are still closely monitoring Hurricane Ian. It's no threat to Texas, but it will be a dangerous storm for residents of Florida. It is predicted to be a major category 4 hurricane over the Southeast Gulf on Tuesday and Wednesday, where it will start bearing down on Florida and continue for the rest of the week. The exact landfall location and timing is still uncertain, but impacts to Florida will be widespread, especially Wednesday through Friday. For the very latest check out our daily tropical update.
