This is how soon we could be waking up to a 40-degree morning

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Championship weather is in the forecast through today. An abundance of sunshine will warm us quickly to about 80 degrees with crisp, fall air still in place.

The clouds return Thursday ahead of a strong cold front blowing into Texas. This cold front won't reach Houston until Friday morning, and it should stay mostly dry until Thursday night as Gulf moisture surges in ahead of the front.

This front will bring another round of showers and thunderstorms, followed by even colder air for the weekend. If the sky clears out as expected, this front may bring Houston its first morning in the 40s so far this fall.

Halloween is now in view of our 10-day forecast, and early indications are another cold front will arrive on October 30th, clearing out the sky and bringing more pleasant weather for trick-or-treat time.
