A cold front will settle into the Houston region on Friday, that will keep temperatures peaking in the low to mid 60's for this weekend.

A separate cold front is also set to arrive on Monday, most likely keeping temperatures from reaching 70 degrees for all of next week.

Friday evening, temperatures are expected to drop relatively quickly, getting into the 40's by dinner time.

Rain and isolated showers are expected Friday as well, however the weekend should be clear, despite the drop in temperatures.

"The front should stall near the coast on Saturday, so we could see some light rain showers around the I – 10 corridor and south on Saturday.. It'll still be mostly cloudy and cold air will continue to funnel, so we won't have much of an opportunity to warm up on Saturday," says Catherine Waltz, meteorologist, National Weather Service.

This front isn't expected to bring hazardous wind or rainy conditions.

Waltz says it could get a bit gusty along the coast, but inland areas surrounding greater Houston shouldn't see any flash flooding, or trees blowing over this weekend.

A separate cold front will arrive on Monday, which will likely bring another fresh round of rain. Temperatures could even get into the 30's in the middle of next week.

"It's finally time to break out those sweaters," Waltz says. "That front will stall offshore, and will slowly push inward on Monday, bringing scattered showers to Southeast Texas.”
