78ºF

A front, finally, and amazing Imelda stats

Models continue to bring a true Fall Front in here the beginning of next week! The above graphic shows the American model pushing it through sometime Monday. And look what that does to lows on Tuesday morning:

I think this is a little optimistic, but certainly outlying areas could get down to the 50s with low 60s in the Houston area! Highs for Tuesday afternoon are just as hopeful:

Lots of upper 70s! Plenty of sunshine may scoot those highs closer to 80-82F, but lets face it--low humidity and blue sky will bring a refreshing bit of relief to all this heat. Did you see the Sweat-tember records? Take a look:

Enjoy the rest of this warm week!  We'll look for some well-deserved changes heading our way!
