After a mostly pleasant holiday weekend, a cold front came plowing through on Sunday and has brought us back to early winter as we start a new week. The good news is that it won’t be too cold for too long, nor will we have a lot of significant weather to discuss this week. Let’s get into the details.
Today & tonight
We’re starting off chilly this morning. We didn’t drop below the mid-60s on Sunday morning. But this morning, temperatures running a good 20 degrees or more colder than 24 hours ago.
It will eventually be a nice day today, albeit cool and breezy still. There’s an area of cloud cover that will be moving through the region this morning. It could perhaps have some showers or light rain with it as it passes through.
Once this passes by, we’ll see clearing this afternoon. So we’ll call it mostly cloudy with a chance of showers through about midday, then becoming mostly sunny. Winds will gradually subside through the afternoon. As long as skies clear out around midday, we should manage 50 degrees or lower-50s. If we stay locked in cloud cover into mid-afternoon, look for a struggle through the upper-40s.
Clearer skies and lighter winds tonight will make it the coldest of the next several. Low temperatures will range from the low-30s north of Houston to the mid-to upper-30s in town and low-40s along the coast.
A light freeze is possible for places like Conroe or Huntsville tonight.
Look for another cool day Tuesday but with less wind and plenty of sunshine. We’ll do a few degrees warmer tomorrow than today, with highs topping off in the upper-50s.
