Special Weather Statement

Alert:

...FIRST MAJOR COLD FRONT OF THE SEASON MONDAY MORNING... 

A cold front currently situated over the Texas Panhandle will

progress into Southeast Texas Monday through Monday night. This

will cause a drastic drop in high temperatures from near 90 today

to near 60 by Tuesday. Winds will increase Monday morning to 10-15

mph sustained with gusts up to 20-25 mph. Showers and isolated

thunderstorms will begin early Monday morning ahead of the front

with periods of showers and thunderstorms lasting behind the front

through Tuesday. Some of these storms may be strong with gusty

winds and small hail. Locally heavy rainfall is possible.

The cold front will be oriented from northeast to southwest.

Expect the front to approach College Station by 1-2 AM Monday,

Houston by 6-7 AM, and Galveston by 10-11 AM. High temperatures on

Monday will be dependent on how quickly the front passes. For

areas along the coast, temperatures may reach the low 80s before

the front passes, whereas the frontal passage early in the morning

for areas inland will limit high temperatures to near 60.

Significantly colder weather will be possible with highs

struggling to get out of the 50s near College Station. High

temperatures in the Houston area will only warm into the lower

60s. A modest warming trend is expected at the end of the week.

Please continue to monitor NOAA Weather Radio for the latest

forecasts, as well as any potential watches or warnings.
