Houston was promised a hot weekend, and Houston got a hot weekend. Here are how temperatures ended up at the major weather sites in the Houston area. Of note, the city’s official station at Bush IAH recorded its first 100-degree day of the year, and Hobby Airport set a record high on Saturday, breaking the old mark of 100 degrees set in 2015.
|Bush Intercontinental||99 degrees||100 degrees||96 degrees|
|Hobby Airport||100 degrees||102 degrees||97 degrees|
|Galveston||91 degrees||93 degrees||91 degrees|
But then a funny thing happened. A rare late July front slogged through the area on Saturday night and Sunday, and this morning nearly all of the region is seeing demonstrably drier air.
With sunny skies we’ll see high temperatures reach the low- to mid-90s today, but with low humidity this evening should feel quite pleasant. Lows tonight will be in the 70s.
