HOUSTON – Temperatures over the weekend were flirting with the 90-degree mark both Saturday and Sunday, heading into early this week, we’ll see many spots sit around 90. However, with the humidity, it’ll feel more like the mid 90s so be ready for a quick kick of late June heat!

However, Wednesday, a weak but important cold front will kick us back into the 80s with some early morning rain showers. It’s not a huge cool down but this is only the first of two for the week. The second one that will come through on Saturday opens the door to a really nice (and unusually cool) start to Mother’s Day weekend!

Until the front arrives, the temperatures are in record territory for the western part of the state. Many West Texas areas will see triple digit heat for the next few days! While we won’t see that hot, we’ll flirt close to record highs. The record for Tuesday is 94 degrees set back in 1904.

Once the second front moves through, we’ll tap into some unusually cool air for May. Highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s!! Get out and enjoy those early spring temps because this may be the last we see of the 70s until next Fall.
