HOUSTON - The winds of the north are about to usher in more seasonable like temperatures! At the time of this entry, we're just hours away!
It's been warm recently. We broke yet another record high yesterday of 86° at Bush-Intercontinental. Today's high will once again challenge records as we soar into the 80s before the fronts arrival.
I guess Nelly was right: "it's gettin' hot in here!"
The front as of 10:15 a.m. has just pushed through Dallas where the saw a 10 to 15 degree temperature drop within about 30 minutes. The same kind of departure can be expected here.
The front is expected to arrive between 2 and 4 p.m. Behind the front, winds will howl from the north between 20 and 30 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph at the coast.
Wind advisories are in effect for Matagorda, Brazoria, Galveston and Chambers counties. Metro Houston is not included in this advisory but still expect a windy afternoon.
As the front arrives, expect a few scattered showers but nothing that'll slow your afternoon outdoor plans down. Temperatures will drop steadily behind the front thanks to strong gales from the north and clearing skies.
Expect clearing skies and starkly colder overnight with many areas waking up to the upper 40s by Sunday morning.
Another cold front is expected in here by Tuesday with similar results and much cooler weather for Thanksgiving. Travel across the country on Wednesday looks to be very good indeed.
