Houston Weather: Fog and showers Friday, much colder Saturday

EMBED </>More Videos

Chilly temps ahead for the weekend!

Areas of fog are still out there, and a few light showers as well. Temperatures will rise into the 70s today by the end of the day.

But Collin says get ready for the temperatures to tumble after a cold front arrives early Saturday morning.

This front is moving quickly and will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms before sunrise Saturday, then usher in a big drop in the temperatures. The thermometer will read near 55 at sunrise then dip into the mid 40s by sunset. Cold north winds will increase through the day and remain strong through the night.

The wind will settle down on Sunday for the Chevron Houston Marathon, but it will still be among the top 10 coldest marathons on record in Houston. Temperatures will be near freezing as the runners gather for the race with a wind chill factor near 20-degrees.

It will cool quickly again Sunday night as the wind settles down, so grab a warm coat if you'll be up late watching the total lunar eclipse.

We are no longer expecting freezing temperatures Monday morning, but there could be some frost on rooftops, grassy surfaces, and vehicles near sunrise. The weather should be otherwise beautiful for all the MLK Day activities.
