Houston May Be on Track to Set Record for Latest Strong Cold Front in Decades

Current models show the first one moving through between the 11th and 15th of October

Houston may be on track to set a record for the latest strong cold front in decades this year. Normally, the Bayou City sees its first 65 degree night sometime in September.

“It is rare, however, for it to get too deep into October,” said Eric Berger, editor at Space City Weather.

Berger compared historical dates of the first fall cold fronts and noted that “the latest front actually occurred on October 13th about a hundred years ago.” “And this year we may actually get that far without a front if you look at some of the long range models,” he added.

Berger said current models show the first cold front moving through Houston between the 11th and 15th.
