Strong winds, colder temperatures moving into Houston area

There is a Wind Advisory in effect through 9 p.m. today with wind gusts possible of up to 45 mph.

HOUSTON — Brace yourselves! Our next cold front is a strong one.

It started moving through early this morning and it's coming with plenty of wind.

A wind advisory has been extended to 9 p.m. Saturday for Harris and Chambers County and some parts of Brazoria and Galveston County. Those other parts along with Matagorda County are under advisory until 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

Scattered power outages have happened today since the gusts went up to 45 mph. In fact, Chief Meteorologist David Paul says some gusts have topped 40 miles per hour.

A significant temperature drop will happen, as well. After reaching the mid-70s Friday, feels like temps (wind chills) Sunday morning will dip in to the mid-20s.

Timeline of cold temperatures this weekend:

Noon Saturday: Strong winds! Wind advisory already issued with gusts up to 45 mph. These winds will be strong enough to knock out power and bring tree limbs down.

7 a.m. Sunday: Cold! Cold! Cold! Actual air temps in the 30s, wind chills in the 20s. 

That roller coaster weather is in full effect over the next couple of days! 

Spanish forecast from Kim Castro

Viento y Frío: El frente que pasó esta mañana nos trae en aire fresco y ventoso este fin de semana. Nos caléntalos para la mitad de la semana.
