The cold front has already entered the state of Texas and will continue its march to the south throughout our Wednesday. With it comes rain and cloud cover in addition to some cooler temperatures.

Wednesday’s forecast

Wednesday will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies with some isolated shower activity possible during the day. We’ll still be ahead of the cold front, so our temperatures will cruise on up to near 90 degrees during the afternoon.

By evening, the cold front will sit just to our north. Showers and storms are expected along the front, and they will bring scattered rain to the area overnight Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Some heavy rain will be possible with this and could result in some minor street flooding.

The wind will turn and blow out of the north as the front passes, however the wind won’t be very strong. Temperatures will also dip down by a few degrees behind the front.

Thursday’s forecast

Early Thursday, the temperatures are forecast to have cooled to the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. Clouds and the chance for rain continue to stick around throughout the day, meaning that temperatures won’t be changing too much. We’ll likely spend most of the day in the 70s, and with some cloud cover and rain, it may feel just a tad cool—especially for us South Texans.

Friday and Saturday

The cold front will stall offshore and continue to create the chance for some rain as we round out the week. As a result, temperatures won’t climb all that far—likely only into the mid-80s.
