So...where's winter?

That's the question someone asked me today on twitter.  I wondered that myself too as I ran errands and saw lots of folks in shorts and tee shirts.  Fact is, it hasn't felt very winter-like in Southeast Texas since the cold departed nearly two weeks ago.  Our highs since last Monday have averaged 75° and a few times this week, some places hit 80°.  Winter made a rude return across the Great Lakes, mid-Atlantic and Northeast with a bitter blast, snow and ice.  But here in Houston, thanks to a nearly stationary moist air mass, we've had foggy mornings and warm afternoons.  The pattern will briefly come to an end by mid-week as a bona-fide cold front pushes through leading to a chill start to February.

So, enjoy the unseasonably warm weather for the next few days.  Then, remember where you put that sweater.

TONIGHT: Fair skies early, with dense fog again developing by sunrise. Lows in the low to mid 60s with light southerly winds 2-5 mph.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy skies after dense morning fog lifts. A few spotty showers are possible.  Highs climb to the mid to upper 70s with southeast winds 5-10 mph.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with occasional, passing showers.  Morning lows in the mid to upper 60s followed by highs in the mid 70s. Southeast winds 5-10 mph.
