Bundle Up, Cold Makes A Comeback

Yeah, I know, today's rain was a non-event.  Most of the heavy, steady showers I expected to see here developed far north of us and continued moving that way.  All we saw were a lot of low clouds, fog and some drizzle.  Now, we're getting ready for a return of colder weather despite an accompanying return of much-needed sunshine.  Here's a look at low temperatures the next few days:

The upper-level wind flow that brought the last few dreary days will finally change direction from southwest to more northwest.  That opens the door for colder air from the Rockies to swing into Southeast Texas, making for the chilly mornings mentioned above.  A stronger push of colder air arrives Friday and some computer models are hinting that there may be just enough moisture to allow for sleet or snow to fall, mainly north of Houston.  That's still a few days off, though and a LOT has to happen for us to see the white stuff anywhere near the Bayou City.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, becoming cooler.  Temperatures falling to the mid 40s by sunrise. Northwest wind 10-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Early clouds quickly give way to increasing sunshine.  Remaining brisk and cool with highs near 60°.  Northwest winds 10-15 early decreasing to 5-10 mph by late afternoon.  

THURSDAY: Sunny and chilly early with a few high clouds returning by late afternoon.  Temperatures in the morning start in the upper 30s and low 40s, rising to the low to mid 60s.  Winds gradually become westerly 5-10 mph.
