1. Today will be cold, breezy and wet.

With the cold front sliding through southeast Texas early Tuesday morning, you’ll be waking up to chilly, wet, breezy weather. Temperatures will start in the low to mid-50s at sunrise and go down from there. We will probably spend the entire afternoon in the 40s, with light rain and a north wind near 20 miles per hour. There is a wind advisory in effect for Houston including all of the coastal counties until 9 p.m. Tuesday. Wind chill temperatures will be in the 30s, so make sure you’ve got a warm, wind-proof and waterproof jacket for the day.

2. The sun re-appears Wednesday, but temperatures stay cool through Friday.

The chilly air mass that barrels in Tuesday will remain here for the remainder of the workweek. The sun re-appears on Wednesday, but we start the day in the upper 30s and don’t make it out of the 50s by afternoon.

Afternoon temperatures will slowly rise between Wednesday and Friday, but they will stay below normal for this time of year. Jacket weather, for sure.

3. Next weekend looks like another beautiful one!

We should finally reach above-normal temperatures by Saturday and Sunday. Highs will reach the upper 60s to low 70s and we’ll see plenty of sunshine, so any weather-dependent plans you have won’t be hampered by Mother Nature.
