A stronger cold front is on the way to Houston | View the temperatures and timeline

KHOU 11 Meteorologist Chita Craft says we are getting some relief from the summer-like conditions we had over the last week.

HOUSTON — Houston is enjoying lower humidity and slightly cooler temps out the door early Tuesday morning, in the 50s and 60s across Southeast Texas.

That is thanks to a front that pushed through late yesterday, but an even stronger cold front is on the way that will make for a picture perfect weekend, says KHOU 11 Meteorologist Chita Craft.

This first front brought a nice relief from the temps in the 90s as well as a nice drop in the humidity, but no, it's not "cold" outside. In fact we will still get into the 80s later today.

Later this week we are getting a stronger cold front. Check out the weather timeline below:
