HOUSTON –- Fall returned to Houston late Thursday morning with the arrival of a cold front and scattered showers, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Brooks Garner.

As the front moved through, temperatures dropped about 20 degrees in most areas – leaving us with an afternoon high around 50 degrees and falling. There’s a 30-percent chance for rain today.

The overnight hours from Thursday to Friday will be very cold, creating the possibility of icy roadways in Central and North Texas. Closer to Houston, ice should not be a problem.

“For us, it’s all rain,” said Garner. “In our overnight hours, we could see a light mix of rain and sleet, but overall we’re not talking about a lot of freezing precipitation close to Houston.”

Friday will be colder as the chance for rain jumps to 50 percent.

For the next several days our overnight lows will be in the 30s and 40s and our afternoon highs won’t be much warmer.

The chance for rain lasts through the weekend and for the start of your next workweek.
