After a brief cool-down to start the work week, temperatures soared on Wednesday to near 90 degrees. That's not far from the record high of 93.
With the passage of a cool front early Thursday morning, temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler by Thursday afternoon and the humidity will be drastically lower. It will certainly feel like fall again.
Relatively speaking, it may feel "cool" to you on Thursday. However, this cooler weather actually reflects the typical weather we should see in the middle of October. We're just coming off a very unusual warm spell. So don't break out your winter coats or thick, wool sweaters to prepare for the cool-down. A light jacket may be handy in the morning on Friday and Saturday, but by the afternoon temperatures should rebound back to the low 80s and short sleeves will be the dress of choice.
The cooler, near-normal temperatures won't last very long in Houston, either. Warm and humid weather will come back by the weekend as we begin to pick up a south wind by Saturday. Temperatures over the weekend should top out in the upper 80s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s.
