Houston cold front is getting closer: We're about to get our first blast of fall-like weather

It won't be "cold" in the daytime, but it will feel a lot nicer with lower humidity and overnight lows in the 50s.

HOUSTON — The KHOU 11 Weather Team is closely monitoring a dive in the jet stream set for next week, bringing fall weather to Texas.

The first day of fall was Tuesday, Sept. 22, but it sure didn't feel like it with the arrival of Tropical Storm Beta. The rain has cleared out, and the sunshine returned for the weekend. But it will remain humid and warm - for now.

NOAA's 6 to 10 day outlook is tracking temperatures slightly below normal for much of the Midwest and Southern U.S. Chicago's daytime high temperatures will be in the 50s for the start of October:

Cooler temps in Houston by Sept. 30, 2020

In Houston, we can expect overnight lows in the upper-50s while Dallas will have overnight lows in the mid-50s by next Friday. 

Timeline: When Houston will get cooler weather

We'll keep with daytime high temps around 90 degrees through this weekend with winds out of the southeast, which equals humidity. That's the bad news.

The good news is in just a few days we should feel much cooler conditions with the arrive of the front. It won't feel "cold" during the daytime (but it will be pleasant), but on some mornings next week you may want a jacket for a couple of hours:

Houston's temperatures after the first fall cold front of 2020

The afternoons will still be in the 70s, but again, with lower humidity. This means it will feel really nice throughout the day.

Expect to really feel the cooler weather in Houston by Tuesday, Sept. 29, lasting at least a few days. We might be done with 90-degree temps in the afternoons for the rest of the year!
