Spring-like weather before fog moves in overnight

HOUSTON – Another afternoon of mid-spring temperatures with widespread upper 70s around Southeast Texas, but don't get too used to the spring heat because big changes are coming for your weekend.

Wednesday night, heading out and about will be very pleasant, with temperatures falling back into the 60s after dinner. As the onshore flow increases, we'll see fog develop after sunset along the coast, with fog developing inland after midnight through Thursday morning. Lows Wednesday night will stay very mild, generally in the mid- to low 50s.

The morning commute will be foggy, possibly some areas dealing with some dense fog so give yourself some extra time to get to work or school. It should clear fairly quickly into the late morning, then back to partly cloudy skies and warm for one last day, in the mid-70s inland, low 70s along the beaches.

A dry cold front comes through on Thursday night which won't be all that impressive, but the shot of cold air that will move in for Friday will be a jarring reminder that we are still in winter. Highs will only be in the low 60s and clouds increasing throughout the day. A storm system moving out the Baja of California will march across Texas on Saturday, but we're not expecting a lot of rain from it on Saturday, with chances increasing to about 30 percent late Saturday night.

The real impact from the storm will unfortunately be on Super Bowl Sunday, so expect a cold, wet day with showers likely on and off through most of the day. Highs will be very chilly in the low 60s. Cooler still early on next week with highs struggling to get into the mid to upper 50s. Even through Monday and some of Tuesday will stay dry, it will be a stark contrast to the warm weather we have been enjoying most of this week.
