Month: January 2017

Houston’s brief flirtation with winter-like weather will come to an end today, as low temperatures are unlikely to fall back into the 40s for at least a week now. It won’t be hot for the next week—but it won’t be cold either. For Super Bowl organizers, that’s probably just fine.

Today

Houston will have another really great day today, with highs climbing into the mid- to upper-70s under sunny skies. Humidity levels will remain fairly low, but moisture will begin returning along with some southerly winds. Lows tonight will be in the upper 50s.

Wednesday

Conditions will be much like Tuesday, although a few degrees warmer, and a little bit more humid with mostly sunny skies. Some fog is possible Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Thursday

A weak cool front will move into the area, bringing some slightly cooler weather and low rain chances. Still, for the most part, this should be a pretty nice day, with highs in the mid-70s and partly sunny skies.

Houston will see one more cold morning, with low temperatures in the low 40s for most of the area, before conditions moderate toward more spring-like weather. For Super Bowl organizers, weather this week will be nearly perfect—although there is some concern about rain chances on game day itself.

Today

A westerly flow will ensure that Houston will see one more dry day today, with highs rising into the low 70s under mostly sunny skies. Lows tonight will fall to about 50 degrees. It’s going to be lovely.

Tuesday and Wednesday

Winds are going to swing back around to come out of the south, but it does not appear as though conditions will be overly blustery. Thus the transition from very dry, the more moist weather will be gradual. As a result look for highs around the mid-70s on Tuesday and Wednesday, with continued mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows will climb back up to about 60 degrees by Wednesday night.

Temperatures this morning have fallen to around 40 degrees across most of Houston, and we’ll continue to see cold weather through the weekend. Super Bowl week will be warmer.

Today through Sunday

The weather today is more or less the same as what we’re going to see through Monday morning, with mostly north-northwesterly breezes, highs of about 60 to 65 degrees, and overnight lows around 40 degrees, give or take. Skies will remain mostly sunny.

Monday through Wednesday

The forecast for the first half of Super Bowl week is pretty well locked in too. Highs by Monday will rise into the upper 60s, and should reach the lower 70s by Wednesday. Overnight lows, too, will gradually climb from the low- to mid-40s on Monday morning into the 50s by Wednesday morning. Rain chances will remain near zero, however, as the onshore flow doesn’t really begin to pick up until Tuesday, as after such a period of prolonged drier air advection it will take some time for moisture levels to recover.

Cooler air has arrived, with overnight lows falling into the 40s north of Houston, and into the low 50s for most of the rest of the metro area. Thus begins a period of prolonged, cooler winter-like weather.

Today through Sunday

Conditions will be more or less sunny to partly sunny the next four days, with a reinforcing cool front arriving on Saturday to keep things on the chilly side. Expect highs of around 60 degrees most days, with lows of around 40 degrees—warmer for the coast and cooler for inland areas. Rain chances will be near zero, even Saturday’s frontal passage should be dry for most areas. Enjoy the return to winter.

Monday through Wednesday

Temperatures will begin to warm up, from the upper 60s on Monday to the lower 70s on Wednesday. Rain chances remain near zero, and lows will probably stay in the low 50s through Wednesday morning under the influence of moderate southerly winds.

NOAA rain accumulation forecast for now through Thursday. Yeah, it’s dry. (Weather Bell)
