The coldest air of the season will push into southeast Texas on Tuesday. Temperatures in the 40s are likely over the county, even near the coast, by Wednesday morning. In addition, the possibility of very strong northerly winds behind the front has resulted in the issuance of a Gale Force Watch along the upper-Texas coast.

The good news with this front is that somewhat milder conditions should return fairly quickly.
