…Colder air moving into southeast Texas today…
A strong cold front has moved through the area today allowing temperatures to fall into the 50s. Temperatures will continue to fall and low temperatures Thursday morning will fall into the 30s over much of the region. Some guidance is showing freezing temperatures for our northern counties Thursday morning but given the clouds and winds have held off on freezing temperatures for now.
The coldest morning of the season is expected on Friday as high pressure settles over the Southern Plains. Areas north of a Brenham to Woodlands to Liberty line will likely see freezing temperatures for six to eight hours. Areas north of a Caldwell to Livingston line could see temperatures in the upper 20s. Further south parts of rural Brazoria… Matagorda… and Fort Bend counties could see freezing temperatures Friday morning for an hour or so. A freeze warning will likely be required Friday morning.
The unseasonably cold weather will persist through the weekend with only slight warming for Saturday and Sunday. A developing storm system will bring a good chance of rain to the coast late Saturday into early Sunday.
