Cold mornings, pleasant afternoons this weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Another cold front has pushed through Southeast Texas, and that will lead to a chilly Saturday.

Temperatures overnight will drop into the 40s with an outside chance a few spots north of Houston briefly dip into the upper 30s. The north breeze at 5-15 mph will add a little extra chill to the air Saturday morning. Sunshine will fill the afternoon sky, but it will only be good enough to warm temperatures into the 60s.

Will the weather stay nice for Sunday?
Yes! Light winds Saturday night will lead to even colder temperatures Sunday morning with an outside chance for some patchy frost in rural spots north and northeast of Houston. A southwest breeze will work with the sunshine to boost temperatures all the way into the mid 70s.

How long do we get to enjoy the sunshine?
Sunny weather will continue through Tuesday. After Tuesday, deeper moisture from the Gulf will bring back more extensive clouds and eventually a return of rain chances as we expect one or two more cold fronts to impact us toward the end of next week.

Is there anything of concern in the tropics?

Texas is normally done with hurricane season by mid-October. Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog explains why in a Weather U lesson. We will continue to monitor the Pacific Ocean for any storms that could curve across Mexico and bring rain to Texas.
