Windy Thursday ushers in Houston area's first freeze of season
HOUSTON – A damp, windy Thursday is the harbinger of the season's first freezing temperatures in the Houston area.
KPRC 2 meteorologist Justin Stapleton said Thursday's high temperature in the 50s came in the morning. Temps will tumble for the remainder of the day, falling into the 40s Thursday afternoon, but with a strong north wind between 15 and 30 mph, it will feel more like the 30s.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory until 6 p.m. for the Houston area.
The National Weather Service also issued a freeze warning from midnight through 9 a.m. Friday for much of the Houston area.
Stapleton said temperatures in most areas will range from the upper 20s north of Houston to the mid-30s across the metro area and the upper 30s to low 40s along the coast. However, some areas north of Interstate 10 could see temperatures below freezing for up to six hours Thursday night into Friday morning.
Temps will be back into the 60s by Saturday and the 70s on Sunday before more rain arrives by the end of the weekend, Stapleton said.
