An Arctic cold front brought an abrupt change to our weather and the coldest temperatures since January to both Galveston Island and the mainland.
The chilly 39 degree low in Galveston was the coldest November temperature there since a 38 degree low in November, 2006. League City’s low of 37 degrees Wednesday was not close to the frigid 28 degree mark observed there in November, 2010.
The good news is that milder temperatures are on their way, with temperatures in the 70s promised for this weekend. There will be a chance of showers later in the weekend, especially from late Saturday night into Sunday.
Another cold front is in the picture for next week, but the air will mostly be of Pacific origin and only a modest cool-down is promised.
