HOUSTON - The consensus among all indicators: we will see true autumn air by next week. Humidity will drop and skies will be sunny. Highs should only approach 80° with lows as cool as the 60s. If the relative humidity drops below 30% it'll officially be considered, "desert dry". Without a doubt, it'll put a little extra zing into your step!
Unfortunately, we could see a widespread 3"-5" rainfall Sunday and Monday as the front passes. Parts of our area have already received well over 85" of rain this year, resulting in a 30"+ surplus. It'll only take an inch of rain per hour over a period of three hours to produce flash flooding. Overall, the flooding risk is low. Perhaps it's a small price to pay for our wonderful extended forecast.
Like the famous 1963 Andy Williams Christmas song, "It's the most wonderful time of the year", most in Houston are reveling at the prospect of our first real cold front. Are you?
