Good morning. If you have outdoor plans this weekend that involve a beach, pool, or sunbathing, you’re in luck. We’re going to see partly to mostly sunny skies, reasonably dry air, and highs right around 90 degrees throughout the weekend. The next few days will also see uncharacteristically low dewpoints of around 60 degrees during the daytime, so Houston won’t feel quite as humid as normal. Enjoy this while it lasts.
Today will be sunny and warm, with high temperatures in the upper 80s to 90 degrees. Winds will be light, out of the northeast, at 5 to 10 mph. There is perhaps a 5 percent chance of rain showers along the coast. Lows tonight will drop to around 70 degrees.
Let’s hope you liked Thursday, because Friday is the same—only rain chances are 0 percent instead of 5 percent. Dewpoints look to be at their lowest today, perhaps in the upper 50s during the afternoon hours.

Should be more of the same.
As high pressure begins to weaken its grip on the area, the overall flow will turn more southerly and Houston’s atmosphere will start to moisten. This may return more clouds to the area, humidity levels will start to rise, and there should be perhaps a 20 percent chance of showers during the afternoon.
Most of next week probably will see highs of around 90 degrees, partly sunny skies, and a modest chance of afternoon showers. Oh, and humidity is coming back as dewpoints rise. Summer is knocking on the door, y’all. Matt will have you covered tomorrow, so let me wish you a safe and happy and fun Memorial Day Weekend.

Starting to hit the traditional summer forecast : Sunny, hot and humid with chance of afternoon thunderstorms.
Repeat until October.
Meteorologists can enjoy an extended vacation unless something brews up in the Gulf (which in recent years has been every other week).
So far, we have reduced Houston’s uncomfortable humidity by one month as May has felt comfortable with low dewpoints and humidity. Hopefully, we can keep these dewpoints into June!
Could you mention air quality on More-Than-Usually-Awful days, for we with lung & other breathing issues? Thanks? E.
They have mentioned air quality in previous posts, but its best to find an alternative source if thats info you need on a continous basis stranger
