Pleasant Wednesday with breezy winds

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A cool front moved through last night bringing in cooler and drier air. Today will be very pleasant with highs in the low 80s and less humid conditions.

The gusty winds along with the dry air and ground northwest of Houston will create ideal grass fire spreading weather so a Fire Weather Watch has been issued.

Cooler temps in the upper 50s are expected for Thursday morning.
