Yesterday felt more like June than November, with an 84° high in Galveston setting a warm temperature record for the day, ironically eclipsing the 83° record high set just last year on November 6, 2017.
One more day of unusual warmth is in store (the temperature in both Houston and Galveston were already 80° at 9:30 am this morning).
Meanwhile, a weak cold front will drift near the coast later today, possibly setting off some showers and thunderstorms. However, a stronger cold front will roll in with a vengeance late Thursday into early Friday, helping to set off more rain. Even at the coast, temperatures are expected to drop to the mid-50’s at the coast by Friday afternoon and evening along with strong northerly winds, with chilly, windy conditions with rain chances continuing through much of the weekend.
Looking further ahead, yet another strong cold front will reach the coast by late Monday or Tuesday, bringing more chilly weather to the area.
If you like it wet and on the cool side, the next one to two weeks should satisfy you!
Perhaps autumn is finally here to stay.
