The City of Houston is under tornado watch this morning. 

A Tornado Watch has been issued for parts of Texas until 4 p.m. today, as a strong cold front is passing through. According to a KHOU Weather report, the thunderstorms aligning with the cold front could pose a severe threat, producing "damaging wind gusts."

The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center has kept the entire area and parts of Louisiana under a Level 2 slight risk for severe weather this morning.  Gusty winds and a few tornadoes are possible.

The threat of severe weather will quickly subside by early afternoon; skies will clear, however Houstonians will experience cooler temperatures throughout the month. Wednesday's wind speeds will be up to 30 mph, but will actually peak Thursday, with winds at 25-35 mph and gusts up to 50 mph.
