HOUSTON — The cold front pushed through yesterday and wow it has made a HUGE difference for today. We are waking up 15-25 degrees cooler compared to yesterday. In fact, temperatures are actually below average. But I will take it. Monday and Tuesday we were tracking record breaking heat. It is always this time of the year we have a roller coaster when it comes to our temperatures. So buckle up and hang in there. 

We stay mostly dry through the weekend until our next cold front arrives Monday. 

Elsewhere, we're also monitoring a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 70% chance for development during the next 48 Hours. Here's the latest in depth look at the system, tap here.
