Near record heat before a stormy cold front blows in

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- If you thought it felt warm Tuesday afternoon, just wait until Wednesday afternoon. Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog says after some morning fog burns off, the temperature will soar to near 90, challenging the record high of 92 from 1986.

After the warm up, another stretch of active, stormy weather is possible starting Thursday afternoon as our next cold front approaches. Travis says that an isolated severe storm with 60 mph winds and quarter-size hail cannot be ruled out, but most of the storms should stay below severe thresholds. This cold front will cool things off going into Easter weekend. It appears more storms are likely Saturday with rain possibly continuing into Easter morning. A stronger cold front arriving right after Easter Sunday could push our low temperatures down into the 40s next week!
