We are in for a wide ride with our weather. A cold front will move through the city of Houston around noon. It will probably bring a thin line of rain but I wouldn’t expect much precipitation with this front. It will bring a lot of wind and much cooler temperatures this afternoon. A wind advisory goes into effect at 1pm and last through 10pm tonight. Expect winds 20 to 30mph with gusts as high at 40mph especially along the coast. Once the front moves through we’ll see temperatures drop into the 60s and the thick clouds will stay with us all day long.
This will also be a record setting front when it comes to our morning low temperatures. Friday between 6:00 and 7:00am temperatures will drop into the 30s and 40s. Here are the records for Houston, Galveston and College Station with my forecasted temperatures.
Houston record from 1978 is 47 degrees I’m forecasting 46
Galveston 54 degrees from 1856 – forecast 49
College Station 45 degrees from 1954 – forecast 39
Houston all time record low for the month of May is 44 degrees set in 1978, I’m forecasting 42 early Saturday morning.
Galveston 52 degrees from 1954 – forecast 54
College Station 42 degrees from 1954 – forecast 41
As you can see from the seven day we’ll be in the 60s Friday afternoon and it will be breezy. Our afternoons this weekend will feel fantastic! Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s with low humidity, perfect and rare for this time of year.
