Houston Weather: Cold fronts move into Texas on Wednesday, when Houston on Thursday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Another hot day comes on Wednesday with temperatures starting in the mid-60s and peaking in the low 80s. The sky will start mostly cloudy in the morning and will become partly cloudy in the afternoon. It will remain windy with southerly winds up to 20 mph.

Changes, however, come Thursday as our next cold front moves through. This will draw cooler and drier air into the end of the work week. Two more fronts are deployed in the following week.

What can you expect with the first cold front?
The cold front, which arrives before sunrise Thursday morning, will bring temperatures down to near normal or below normal through Saturday. We expect highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s behind the front. Our average highs at this time of year are low 70s with average lows in the low 50s. There is a 30% chance of showers along and behind the front, but no serious storm is expected.

When can we expect the other two fronts?
The second front arrives early Monday morning and the third front is set for Thanksgiving Day.

So it’s going to be cold for Thanksgiving Day?

It is too early to determine the timing of the expected cold front for Thanksgiving Day, and the timing of the front may shift forward or backward by one day. In front of the front it will be very mild and humid, but once the front blows in, it should feel festively cool outside. It also looks more likely that the weather system pushing this front could bring widespread showers and thunderstorms on and around Thanksgiving Day. We will definitely keep you updated as the holidays approach.
