Pleasant weather—for June—through the weekend for Houston

Note: Sorry for the late post this morning but for personal reasons I had to stay up very late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Fortunately the region’s weather is most benign now, and will be for several days.

Wednesday through Friday

With high pressure and northeasterly winds, Houston will have a few pleasant days to end the week. Highs will be warm, around 90 degrees, but drier-than-normal air will allow for evening temperatures to cool off into the upper 60s to around 70 degrees, and the lower humidity levels will make for pleasant mornings and evenings. Skies will be sunny, with no chance of rain.

Saturday

Another nice day, but we’re going to see the return of southerly winds sometime on Friday night or Saturday, which will begin the process of raising humidity levels and, eventually, rain chances. The day should be mostly sunny with highs near 90 degrees.

Sunday

Morning lows will be back into their normal mid-70s for this time of year, and with moisture levels rising, we can’t rule out the possibility of a few afternoon showers. But for the most part I think Houston will enjoy a mostly sunny day with highs near 90 degrees.

Monday and Tuesday

As moisture pools in the atmosphere, some lower pressure should move into the Texas region early next week. This is no cause for alarm, but should raise rain chances on Monday and Tuesday, and indeed I expect to see at least a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms most days next week. With highs of around 90 degrees, or perhaps the low 90s, this is a pretty typical pattern for June in Houston. And I would say it certainly beats mid- or upper-90 degree temperatures.
