Cold temps shatter 107-year-old record in Houston

HOUSTON – It was 1910 the last time it was this cold at Bush Intercontinental Airport, and 1952 since it was this cold at Hobby Airport.

It was 36 degrees on Sunday morning at IAH, which shattered the previous record low temperature of 39 degrees. At HOU, it was 39 degrees which broke the previous record low of 42 degrees.

The good news is that the wind is not a factor. So, what you see in temperature is what you actually feel.

Expect a warmup to about 70 degrees by Sunday afternoon. That is about 9 degrees warmer than Saturday, but still about 8 degrees colder than the norm.

Plenty of sunshine is forecast for Sunday and Monday as the temperature warms by 10 degrees for Monday morning and another 10 degrees by Tuesday.

Rain chances start to come back into the forecast by Tuesday. Halloween looks to have about a 20 to 30 percent chance of rain, but the highest rain chances of about 60 percent come on Wednesday.

Temperatures continue their upward climb toward the low 80s by Thursday.
