Cold front Monday brings storms and cooler temps

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Tomorrow is COLD FRONT DAY! With the cold front comes rain, cooler air, and breezy winds.

Scattered rain could start popping up ahead of the front in the early morning hours on Monday with rain chances peaking just ahead of the cold front with a line of showers and storms. We will have to watch out for a strong storm or two. The primary threat if we see a strong storm will be damaging wind gusts near 60 mph (isolated hail and tornado threat is low, but not zero).

Behind the front, cooler air moves in bringing down temperatures for the afternoon. So for most of us, we will need short sleeves for the morning and a light jacket for the afternoon!

How long will these cooler temps stick around?
Tuesday will be cooler with lows in the 50s and highs in the upper 60s. We quickly warm up by Wednesday though with highs topping out in the low 70s. Temperatures Thursday and Friday afternoon will near 80 degrees!

Is there any freezing weather in sight?

Not yet! We are expecting a stronger cold front to move in next Saturday and that may drop temperatures in the 30s but freezing weather is not anticipated. On average, Houston's first freeze occurs the first week of December, and that will not happen this time around.
