HOUSTON — A cold front dropped temperatures by at least 20 degrees in parts of Houston on Sunday making for a very chilly start to the work week, according to KHOU 11 News Meteorologist Mario Gomez.

The National Weather Service issued a Hard Freeze Warning from midnight through Monday morning for most of Southeast Texas.

A Wind Chill Advisory is also in effect until 8 a.m. Monday along with a Wind Advisory until 9 a.m. with gusts of 30 to 40 mph.

Overnight temperatures will drop down to the low-30s for most of the area. The communities north of Interstate 10 are advised to cover their plants and take care of their outdoor pets as frost is definitely a possibility.

Sunday night’s rain will clear out of the area around midnight. For Monday morning, be sure to dress in layers as the wind chill will make it feel much colder even than the expected high of 44.

The rain will likely return Wednesday with a 40 percent chance of rain.
