Stay Warm! Houston Cold Front To Last Until Thursday

Temperatures will drop to around freezing on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

A cold front that arrived in the Houston area this morning is expected to last until Thursday.

Sean Luchs, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in League City, said the temperature will continue to drop on Monday, reaching the mid-30s at night.

"The coldest nights are yet to come," he said. "Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and Wednesday night into Thursday morning, temperatures in the city will be falling down to around freezing."

He said temperatures will start warming up Thursday morning and into the weekend.

Though it's slightly earlier than normal for a first freeze in the Houston Metro area, Luchs said it's not unheard of and not necessarily a sign of a colder winter to come.

"You can get an early cold intrusion and then not see that manifest itself through the rest of the winter," he said. "So this one isolated incident may or may not bode for a cold winter ahead."
