Good morning. Houston’s relatively mild weather for May will continue for awhile thanks to a front this week, and frankly we should savor these days as summer looms just around the corner.
A few stray showers passed across Houston on Tuesday, and we’ll probably see similar conditions today—which is to say mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of brief showers. Clouds should help limit high temperatures to the mid-80s, which is near normal for this time of year. Overnight temperatures remain warm and humid.
Thursday and Friday
Rain chances will increase marginally on toward the end of the work week as an upper-level low pressure system moves across the United States, and pushes a late season cold front through Texas. This will perturb our moist atmosphere enough such that we could squeeze out some rain showers ahead of the front on Thursday, and with its passage on Friday by or before noon. Amounts won’t be significant, with totals likely around one to two tenths of an inch for areas that do get rain. Highs on Thursday and Friday will likely reach the mid- to upper-80s.
