Colder temperatures will move through Houston this week. Cold and windy temperatures were recorded early Monday morning with the low dipping into the mid-40’s. They’ll raise back into the high 50’s Monday afternoon.

A front moved through on Sunday after a week of rain and humid conditions dominated Friday, Saturday and into Sunday’s forecast.

Lows on Monday night will drop into the upper 30’s and low 40’s, according to National Weather Service Houston.

The weather service issued a “gale warning,” a warning of sustained winds accompanied by hazardous marine conditions along the Texas coast Monday. A low water advisory is in effect along the coast until 3 p.m. Monday, and mariners should navigate shallow waters with extreme caution, according to the weather service.

Temperatures on Tuesday will start out chilly, rising to the mid-60’s by the afternoon. Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will warm up into the low 70’s before a moist atmosphere and low pressure over the Gulf will increase chances of rain on Friday, according to Space City Weather.

Rain showers are expected Saturday morning and clouds will likely linger for the remainder of the day. Temperatures will dip to around 40 degrees Saturday night.
