The hot weather is from Hurricane Delta.

Interestingly after Hurricane Jerry made landfall in 1989, it got cold and Houston recorded the earlier 32°F on record.

Just what I wanted to do. Drag the water hose around when its nearly 90 degrees in mid October and hasn't had measurable rain in 3 weeks.

Yeah, it's funny. On the East Coast (ex. North Carolina) it's clearing, drier and cooler after a hurricane.

In Texas it gets hot as hell!

We have a windshift this morning bringing in northerly drier air by this evening. Hope it makes it down to Houston. Big front on Friday.

Hope that doesn’t happen, and I doubt it will anytime soon.
We'll see. They've seen 100F in February right on the Gulf at Tulum and Villahermosa. And it's already reached Texas, even Laredo and McAllen have seen 100F in February!

Dewpoint of 51° now with a northerly breeze. What a relief.

What a shock.....ugh......forecast has pulled away from those really cool temps this weekend and next week. It’s starting to feel like we will never get cold again. Lol

Yep, GFS totally took away the strong front for Monday that previously showed lows well into the 40's for next week with staying power. She gone. Crazy.

It's TWC and GFS vs. Canadian and NOAA (a little cooler)

The forecasts on smart phones are usually TWC-related. Historically, they are rather iffy beyond 72 hours..

I will say the NW counties will likely see more relief than Houston-Galveston on Friday and next week.
