All good things must come to an end, and we are quickly nearing the end of spring-like weather in Houston. But before the humidity comes to the region for good this summer, we should look back and appreciate the month of April—which had a succession of cool fronts that kept the humidity consistently in check, and mostly kept daytime highs in the 70s and low 80s. Moreover, the majority of nighttime temperatures this month were in the 50s (as can be seen below). After this morning, I’m not sure we’ll see another overnight low in the 50s until September or even October.
Monday and Tuesday
Onshore winds are really going to ramp up today, in response to lower pressures over the western United States. Effectively, this means gusty southerly winds (perhaps up to around 20mph) rising humidity levels, and muggier overnight temperatures. Highs on Monday and Tuesday will probably remain around 80 degrees under partly sunny skies, but overnight temperatures are going to jump up to around 70 degrees as mostly cloudy skies help lock in daytime heat.
