Happy St. Patrick’s Day! So the Houston area survived yesterday’s handful of light showers without much trouble. The good news is that we’re on the way to having a weekend without having to worry much at all about any weather.

Today and Weekend

We’ll start with clouds again this morning and partially clear them out through the day. Overall, it should be nice, with temperatures warming into the upper 70s. Yes,a sprinkle or a brief shower could pop up, but it won’t be anything serious. It will be a bit breezy, especially south of Houston. Breaks in the clouds will try to thicken back up tonight. In addition, we could also be talking about a little patchy fog in spots. Saturday will be like Friday with low morning clouds giving way to sunny periods. It’s entirely possible that a brief shower or small storm pops up Saturday, but I’d bet heavily against seeing raindrops in most spots.

Heading into Sunday, we’ll continue onshore flow, but I think any morning low clouds and fog will clear out a little more aggressively during the afternoon. Expect temperatures to hit around 80 or the low 80s on Saturday and low to maybe mid 80s on Sunday.

We’ve had some beautiful weather this spring break week. But as we head to the back half, we will have a few minor showers to discuss today.

Today

Our beautiful weather ends today, though it certainly shouldn’t be too terrible. We’ll start with clouds this morning, and as the day goes on, we should see breaks of sun here and there. I wouldn’t be floored to see us actually have a good bit of sun for awhile at some point. For the most part though, today will be mostly cloudy. Though the majority of us will be dry for the majority of the day, we will see showers develop. Expect narrow bands of weak showers to stream in off the Gulf across the Houston area this afternoon. One or two showers could be steady for a bit, but with a good onshore flow, I expect any rain will be mostly brief and move on by fairly quickly.

This model tends to over-predict showers a bit, and it’s not even all that bad for today. Don’t be shocked to see a few raindrops, but no serious problems today. (Weather Bell)

 

Temperatures will slowly warm up with the clouds. Expect to see us hit the low 70s this afternoon.

It’s been a really, really nice start to the week if you like cool and pleasant weather. As we head toward the weekend, we’ll begin to warm things back up, as the weather pattern reverts to more typical spring for Southeast Texas. But for now, the rain chances won’t really follow.

Today

It’s another cool start to the day across the region. We’ve got mostly 40s and some 50s around this morning. We’ll warm things up again this afternoon into the upper 60s or low 70s. We’ll keep it mostly sunny, but I think you’ll notice at least a few higher clouds from time to time today. Wednesday is a bit of a transition day back to onshore flow and typical spring weather.

Tomorrow and Friday

You’ll notice that onshore flow more both visually and by feel on Thursday I think. Some low clouds should build up in spots overnight, especially closer to the coast as humidity begins to tick upward. Thursday morning won’t start nearly as cool as today and will likely be six to ten degrees warmer in spots.

Thursday afternoon may look a bit murky. Expect clouds and sun, but it will be warm. High temperatures should reach the low to mid 70s. A stray sprinkle or shower is possible also. We’ll be even a bit milder Friday morning, with lows probably in the 60s in most spots. Friday afternoon will again see a good deal of clouds mixed in with some sunshine. There could also be a sprinkle or brief shower, but that would very much be the exception, not the rule. Temperatures will warm up further, reaching the upper 70s to near 80° Friday.

Sunday was our coolest day since February 16th. Yesterday was just a little bit milder. Today? Quiet, similar, and not bad at all.

Today and Wednesday

No weather woes the next couple days. We’re starting off quite a bit chilly this morning, with 40s across much of the area and even some 30s north of Conroe.

As the day goes on, expect plenty of sunshine and temperatures cresting in the mid or perhaps upper 60s. We’ll have another cool night tonight, but expect Wednesday morning to start about two to four degrees warmer than today. Wednesday looks like another nice day on the whole. We’ll have just a few more clouds than today, but temperatures should try to crack 70 degrees.

After a chilly, Sunday, we’ll start spring break week for many on a positive note. And spring-like weather should stay with us most of the week.

Today Through Wednesday

There will still be a bit of cloud cover to work through today, but we should see at least breaks of sun, especially this afternoon. It won’t be as cool as Sunday, with temperatures inching their way up to 65 to 70 degrees depending on exactly how much sun we see. Temperatures tonight look a bit chilly, as we should clear skies out. Most areas should see 40s, and some folks may even see some upper 30s. That would be mainly up toward Conroe or in the typically cold spots outside Houston.

Overnight lows tonight into Tuesday morning will be a bit chilly, especially north of the city. (Weather Bell)

 

Tuesday’s cool start will be brief, and we’ll see temperature push up into the upper 60s to near 70°, with plenty of sunshine on what looks like a near-perfect afternoon. Wednesday shouldn’t be much different. We should have a cool start in the 40s or 50s and a warm finish in the low 70s with sunshine.
