2. Showers and tumbling temperatures

The cold front will move in during the day Saturday bringing in a round of showers. Only a half-inch of rain is expected, making the temperature drop behind the front the big story. Temperatures in Houston will be mild in the low 70s ahead of the front and will drop to the 50s by the afternoon.
