HOUSTON – The first freeze this fall may occur north of Houston in the overnight hours, KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman said.
A freeze warning is in effect for Grimes, Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker and Washington counties. By 3 to 5 a.m. temperatures in these locations may fall below 32 degrees and won’t get above freezing until 8 a.m.
Tender vegetation is most at risk; bring those plants in for the evening. Small pets that are not used to the cold should also spend the night in an enclosed, covered location.
Thursday we are expected to see a return of the sunshine and somewhat milder air, Norman said.
“We should see temperatures climb in the mid-60s,” he said. “There will be a nice gradual thaw from that morning chill.”
The seven-day forecast shows a gradual warming chill in the afternoons, but the mornings will remain chilly.
