Surprise! A weak cold front did push through Houston Saturday night

A weak, dying cold front pushed through the Houston area on Saturday night—if you were awoken by storms, that was it—and this will set the stage for a couple of drier days. Initially, we expected this front to stall out near or over Houston, leading to more wet weather, but as it has pushed far enough east most areas should see a bit of a reprieve for a few days from the rain.

Low temperatures on Sunday morning are nice, especially to the west where the front made it. (National Weather Service)

Temperature wise it won’t make too much of a difference, with highs still near around 90 degrees on Sunday and Monday with partly sunny skies, but mornings and evenings should feel a bit more pleasant until the front slides back tomorrow some time.

After this we’ll fall back into a wet pattern beginning later on Tuesday or Wednesday as another front nears the area. Again, we expect this one to stall before or near Houston, leaving us in a muggy, wet pattern. But if we get lucky again, perhaps that front will push through Houston as well, making for nicer weather next weekend. I certainly wouldn’t bet on it at this point, so for now just enjoy what should be a pretty nice Sunday.

    Eric, thanks for the update. When I let the dogs out this morning, the air felt cooler and drier than in recent days. Now I know why…

    Matt and Eric – Thank you for your daily updates. As one of those who dread the Houston summer, today was literally a breath of fresh air… do I hear a sigh of relief. Thanks again for your faithful reporting and walking with us through the post-Harvey summer that caused anxiety for many of us. Are we in the safety zone yet?

    One of the more pleasant morning Texan tailgating experiences in quite a while…unfortunately a football game got in the way of good tailgating…we should have stayed in the parking lot…

    Guys –

    Any chance you could rain out the Texans game next Sunday Indy? Maybe just a good flood within a mile radius of the stadium?
