A healthy line of storms is moving through the Houston region this morning, generally bringing 0.25 to 0.75 inch of rain as a cold front moves through.
The strongest storms and thunderstorms have now moved east of the area and we should see clearing conditions throughout the morning. Highs today should remain in the 60s and we’ll probably see some sunshine during the afternoon hours. Winds will be brisk out of the north-northwest throughout the daylight hours.
The forecast for Friday remains exceptional, with morning lows around 50, highs around 70, moderate winds and lots of sunshine.
We’ll see the return of Gulf moisture beginning on Saturday, although it will still be a mostly sunny day, with highs in the upper 70s and lots of sunshine.
Storms on Easter now seem less likely, as the available energy seems to be fairly low as a front moves through during the afternoon or early evening hours. I’ll call for a mostly cloudy day, with highs near 80, and a chance of light rain.
We’ll start out cooler after Sunday’s cold front, perhaps with lows around 50. Next chance of storms comes next Thursday or so.
