Houston's brief flirtation with wintry temps isn't going anywhere—at least for the start of the week. Houstonians wrapped up in scarves and heavy coats can expect to keep their winter gear handy, as the mercury won't climb out of the cold just yet. Monday's forecast teases partly sunny skies and breezes, making a 57-degree afternoon feel all the chillier. Normally, it's about 12 degrees toastier this time of year in Bayou City according to the Houston Chronicle.
ABC13 is forecasting even cooler mornings ahead. With lows expected to hover in the upper 30s or low 40s, folks north and west of H-Town may be punching in 'how to defrost my windshield' on their phones for a few more days. But it's not all shivers and teeth-chattering, as we're in for some more sunshine with that delightfully calm breeze.
"A more active pattern arrives as we head into the end of the week with global models remaining in good agreement in showing a robust midlevel shortwave approaching from the west early on Thursday," according to the weather wisdom of the Houston Chronicle. Thursday's shopping lists might need to include an umbrella, with a 60% chance of showers and storms predicted by ABC13.
